I was looking around for some programming cables and came across this. £7.60 delivered so thought I would give it a go and it has arrived and indeed I have tested it on a few radios and has been ok. Added to this there is software for radios also and the ones I have the radios they are working.
Below is a list of the radios it is supposed to work with. I have obviously not all of these but what I have tried it on it seems ok to work, and this is with Windows 8.1 Pro Software
