Thanks to everyone who replied. Glad I found this K3 group. I think Bob mentioned it on the Elecraft List a while back. Mike kd8dz

The obsoleted Prolific XA and HXA devices work well, but require extra effort. The devices were declared end-of-life and the driver support was removed because of widespread piracy of the hardware. How to:
If you can't find the driver, I will try to help. BTW, I don't think the Prolific PL2303 HXB is affected, just the XA and HXA.
Finally, I operate a humanitarian Prolific rescue. If anyone wants to scrap the cables I'll pay shipping.

"Prolific"=pain, in my experience
TrippLite high speed using ftdi chipset will be least pain on a mac, fwiw.
Trying to recall the other name for it pre/post buyout.
