Allround Programming cable – KENWOOD RPC K1-U USB 2.0 Write Frequency Cable - Black (120cm) Reviews

posted by RoboW on 04/18/2014 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Prolific driver is installed automatically under Win7 via Win Update Works fine to program Baofeng UV-5RA Frequency lists can be im/exported, but also settings and "hidden features" both plugs are robust
Cons:
USB plug is bigger than others, because the Prolifix UART Bridge is inside
Other:
Watch out on programming: if the connection falls to standby, the transceiver transmits on last used frequency! (but this is a software problem, not a problem of this specific cable)
Bottomline:
Perfect for programming handheld radios
