Outstanding problem solver  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Interfacing a computer and the radio with software can be a frustrating and time consuming effort and many times can be resolved with a high speed cable. I had tried the 1/2 dozen or so USB-Serial cables I had on hand, and no joy. After trying unsuccessfully to run CallSign software for my R-75 with these on-hand cables, I tried the is red_ella cable and the radio instantly responded and no have no issues with the radio control software at all. I bought an FT-450 and it continually dropped from HRD, switched the cable from the R-75, and never dropped again. My Elecraft W-2 SWR/PWR meter was jamming up the works, tried this cable and no problems since. I am now running my R-75, FT-450, Elecraft W-2, and TS-480SAT with these cables and I highly recommend them if you are having interface/connection problems.
