Bought a Good One - RT Systems USB-57B from HRO.

System Requirements - Windows 10 etc.   Download Software. 

This is for the ubiquitous FT-270R Yaesu 

I use the MacBook Pro which may Not be supported by the RT Systems cable. 

We will see if my Buddy Jim's software works with this set-up. May need to download this cable specific software.

CHIRP works well for me on my Mac.

RT systems cable may only work with RT software. I seem to recall that being the case but not 100% sure. Basically when shopping for a cable you want one that has a genuine FTDI chip in it like this one:

The knockoffs will work with Win 7/10 but it requires some fiddling around with legacy drivers. FTDI chip is supported by Win 7/10.

 This is the List of Supported radios for CHIRP Software -  The FT-270R is missing in action. Buying the ADMS-270 Software and see where that leads.
