Amazon has working knock-offs for $30.

Hopefully self promotion is not frowned on but here goes. I got sick of the programming cables, boxes etc that were "iffy" or cost more then the radio so I designed my own and sell them on EBAY.

Don't laugh I know its got blinky lights. I did it for a reason. If you have a new radio they tell you a few things. Such as seeing if the radio has power to the mic and if the current loop that communicates everything to and from the front panel / control head is working and the loop is making it to the mic jack. Also when you try to program the radio the data busy led indicates if data is moving or if its just blurped out a couple commands and died. So by blatant self promotion I give you https://www.ebay.com/itm/EF-JOHNSON-...IAAOSw~AVYpQN4

It comes with my zero anxiety warranty. If your unhappy? You get it fixed, replaced or refunded in what you decide is a reasonable time. *It doesn't include devices crushed, smashed or operated underwater. And due to the wonders of insomnia customers can call me as late as 11PM Central. I set up a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/refurbatron/ If your curious I have a short video and some misc blather about EF Johnson 5100 and 5300 radios that I focus on. Note if you try communicating using facebook be aware that I'm really not a big social media fan so phone, email or ebay are 100x better if you want to get in touch.
