What is your operating system and cable driver version? Stephen was able to 
roll back his Prolific driver to 3.2.0.0 for Windows 7 and now the PTT 
does not activate when using the software.

It is the case here, with two (non-counterfeit) cables.  The rig keys up as
soon as the software (any software) activates the serial port.

I have identified two solutions:

1.  Connect the unit to the cable (power off!), prepare Chirp so that you
only need to click the OK button in order to start the transfer, power the
unit on, and click the OK button as soon as the rig's display lights up.
The transfer begins and the transmitter doesn't turn on.

2.  Put in a receive-only channel (I have local NWS in channel 1, with
transmit disabled), set the rig to that channel, plug stuff in, run Chirp,
everybody happy.
