>     Your problem is most likely a counterfeit Prolific chip in the cable.  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

The issue you speak of is only for Windows and MacOS X users. The
Linux device driver for the Prolific type USB-to-TTL chip is not
written by the Prolific company so it does not care if the chip is
genuine or counterfeit. It just works.
