    Absolutely nessecary for programming UV-R5

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    This programming cable makes programming your handy very easy. Without it programming your devices usually is very hard. Its necessary for handy's like the BAOFENG UV-5R radioi because pregramming without this is near to impossible.
    Cons:
    None really. Read that some people really have difficulty installing the cable (since it has a built in usb-to-serial chip in i...

    Reasonable product

    posted by AndyR89 on 06/26/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Easy to connect and install. Seems like good quality materials used. Software runs on most operating systems and speeds of machines despite other manufacturers claiming THEIR software runs better on older machines
    Cons:
    Not easy to pick correct radio model, lack of instructions make it fiddly to programme channels once model IS found
