That sounds helpful and likely true, being that the cable and radio came from the Wish app.

Go to www.miklor.com and they tell you how to install a legacy driver for the chip which will recognize the radio with your computer attached.  You can also go into your operating system and tell it not to automatically update that particular driver when new versions of the operating system are installed.  Chris Knowles, N1CAK
