On the off chance that there are those who might under appreciate or under value the tremendous work and creativity DONATED by the developers of CHiRP may I say loud and clear, 599 –

                  Thank you!

If Bry finds a source of high quality cables he might start selling them along with a FREE Linux CD of CHIRP Daily Build and he'd become a Corporate Sponsor with a monthly stipend to the devels.

And cables that fit China radios, too.

No one said you had to program your radio via a computer.  You can just
use the keypad to get the same thing done.  It's just usually a LOT harder.

Alternatively, if you want known quality, you can buy solutions from say
RT Systems which include cables (those also occasionally go bad) and
software but if you want to take your saved settings to a new radio, you
have to buy THAT radio's software package.  If you have 5 different
radios.. that can get quite expensive in a hurry.  Chirp doesn't follow
that approach and one program attempts to program ALL radios but with a
community based effort, you must temper your complaints with how much
you paid for the software.  $0 = a few complaints  ;-)
