Wanted to Buy KUSB Cable


invl160 Davis
 

Hello 
Would anyone have a KUSB Cable that is surplus to their needs and willing to sell?
I need for my remote station.  During the summer when my KPA500 was not in use I used its cable to setup on site CAT control 
so that I can use the station for 6M digital DXing 
Looking for an economical alternative. The cost to buy and ship from Elecraft is very  high

I’ve always used a third party USB to serial cable, usually from Amazon. It needs to have a genuine FTDI chipset to be compatible.

As indicated earlier unfortunately my sister picked me up & we went in her car & she had arranged the little mini gathering so I had to attend until the end & then she drove me home sorry for the  screw up totally beyond my control I see your request for the KUSB came later so presume the one I had offered is not suitable for your requirement ??

I've bought several USB to serial cables from KJ6ZWL, who sells on ebay as "BlueMax49ers" They use FDTI chips and very good quality connectors. He also sells from bluemax49ers.com In addition to cables for Elecraft rigs, I've bought his cables to program my VHF/UHF mobiles and talkies.

I think it looks same as one from Graham which uses Prolific chips.  I swapped with Elecraft KUSB Cable I am using with FT991A and it doesn’t work.   I can try yours to confirm if you can bring it on Thursday at coffee.
