so you are saying the only cable that will work with chirp and the IC-92AD
is the icom cable that plug directly into the 92AD and has the RS232 end?
Is there any RS232 adapter that will wor with this cable and chirp as all
of my computers have USB ports and no RS232 port. Is there any hope that
this will change in Chirp in the future so the OPC478 cable can be used?
