Is there an adapter that will allow me to connect a computer with only USB ports to the BCT8 RS232 remote port. What software will support this configuration?

Can I use USB to RS232 adapter plus a RS232C straight cable?

As for programming software, there's really only 2 applications that support it - ARC8 from BuTel and Scan Control. I highly doubt that the original Uniden software - which is older than the hills - would work on today's PCs, though I could be wrong about that.

The other packages - Trunk88, Trunkview and UniTrunker - really aren't meant as programming tools, although the information gleaned from these packages can help in mining out details on an unknown system. Frankly those tools are really not geared for a new person.

best regards..Mike
