Re: Serial cable question

I actually have a USB-Serial cable that works with both my 700 and TH7. I had it back in the old days of Win98. I saw a picture on a website that looked like mine, so downloaded drivers just to check if it would work and it been going ever since.

My experience here is that doesnt work with the programming software for
the TMD700A

I had to get a *real* serial cable and hook it up to a real serial port
(ie. all 9 pins straight through).
a USB serial adapter would not work.

Now, i've done the other thing when i just wanted to run WinAPRS or
something with the radio, but if you're going to use a connection for
programming, its best if its a real serial port.

One could get the appropriate gender RJ45 to Serial Adapters and connect
them with a standard network (Ethernet) cable. A very simple and compact
way to make your own serial cables. Mix and match the genders of the
adapters and can cover all bases.
