[chirp_users] Serial Cable Required?

I hope the CHIRP brain trust will forgive this most basic question from a new member:

Is a serial programming cable required for use with CHIRP?

I see that the logo is a DB9 connector and the program allows only a COM1 setting but I thought I'd ask anyway since I have only the USB cable for my Baofeng UV-5RA.

Can anyone recommend a source for a serial programming cable for the UV-5RA?

Many Thanks,
