    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 found a deal on the old #20-0047 usb programming cable at my local radio shack to use on my pro-97. Question is that i have windows 7 on my computer. Is there someplace to find the driver for this cable so it will work with my new computer? I don't really want to buy the new style cable for $35 if i don't have to. Thanks

That cable should be plug-n-play with windows 7. My cable worked without installing the driver that came with it. Check th RS web site, the driver may be there if you need it. PM me if you need it and I'll see what I can do.

Hi,

You can also download the latest equivalent driver from the GRE website (who manufactured the cable).

Thx.

The link for the download posted by dond943 takes one to the latest drivers from the FTDI website (FTDI manufactured the chipset used in the Radio Shack cable).
