    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have the RT systems software and the original serial cable to program my old but still working fine IC-207 dual band mobile. Problem is, as we all know, laptops and netbooks don't have serial ports anymore.

Has anyone used the USB kit RT systems sells along with their old software for this radio? Or do I need to go on the hunt for a off the shelf solution?

As long as you have a serial cable that goes to to the radio then the only thing you need is a USB to serial port convertor that plugs into the laptop or netbook. Also make sure that the software to program the radio works with the version of windows you use.
