CAT Cable for 40m QCX...

Mark Garrisi
 

Good morning everyone!

     I've written before about a CAT cable for use on QCX.  I understand I need a TTL level cable.  Amazon has one that has 5 volts USB to 3.5mm stereo plug.
My question is: Can I use this cable that has a FTDI chip in it?  I'll post the cable here:

Thank you for your input.  Mark N8IAJ

The one you listed Mark is a non-RS-232 cable.?? You need an RS-232 cable.?? You can get one from Elecraft that is ready to go, or from Mouser or Digikey with pigtails at the serial end.
