If you are like me you are always looking for a less expensive cable for Uniden's special serial cable. I have seen the thread for a cable on ebay, and purchased several, only to be disappointed when they arrived because the cable itself is quite a bit smaller in diameter and the wires are extremely small. I have found an alternative that works extremely, well and has a cable that is comparable to the original Uniden cable. It also has a shield in the cable which adds a great amount of strength to the cable. The unfortunate part is that it is also a USB cable . So the USB plug needs to be removed and a DB-9 plug needs to be soldered on. The advantage to that is that you can put on a Male connector and switch the RX and TX lines so that you wont need a null adapter or gender changer to connect your scanner to a gps unit.It wolrks great with the HP-1 and the BC346xt. I have ordered several extra cables for spares and have found bulk amounts of DB-9 connectors and hoods on ebay. makes for a quick fun project and saves lots of cash.
Here's the link for the cable, and its here in the US , so shipping will be quick and free
