If I remember correctly you cannot program the 92 with the OPC1797 splitter
cable. You need to use the "real" programming cable, which I think is an

The pinout is (may be?):

Subject: [chirp_users] IC92AD issues

I have a ic-92ad submersible with the waterproof mic/data connector on top
of the radio. To program the radio I have the opc-1797 cable connected to
the radio and then a USB cable (opc-478) with a 3.5mm plug that I purchased
from KJ6ZWL that uses a FTDI chip. The cable drivers installed correctly.
I'm using the latest version of chirp. But I just can't get the radio to
talk to the chirp software. When I tell chirp to "download from radio" it
comes up with 0.0000 under frequency and error under name for every location
in the radio. If I type in a frequency and name for a location in chirp it
doesn't update the radio. I tried to find a way to search the mailing list
archives but couldn't find one. I have manually gone through all of the
emails from the chirp list dealing with the IC92AD. Nothing in the emails
seem to help me getting chirp and my IC92AD talking.  What am I doing wrong?
