Re: CAT Control Options

Can anyone check if one of these valley-ent cat cables will supply 5v to the pi over the usb connector? 

I have an official cat -> serial adapter for my ft-857d and ran into an issue trying to set it up with a pi that it will power on the pi over the usb to serial adapter connection, even if I disconnect the usb power cable from the pi...  I'm sure this is bad - going to burn up some voltage regulator in the adapter and making it hard for me to switch off the pi when I need to power cycle it.
