Hi, I'm a new member here, and so far, really like and appreciate the site.  Do you know if the cable you are speaking about is also good for the PM400?

Thanks!

The PM400 and other CM radios take a slightly different cable than Radius/Maxtrac/Jedi radios.  You'll need pins 6-8 shorted on the RJ-45 to get it to program.

WA1MIK shows how to here:

I agree.  I have purchased a few cables off of Ebay.  You have to be cautious of which cables you get.  I have recently purchased (on accident, but my fault) a multi-purpose cable and it is useless.  It does not have a Prolific or FTDI chip in it.  It uses a Silicon Labs 2102 chip.  Luckily I am not out too much money.  It was shipped from China, so it would be more expensive to send it back and get it replaced.  I will take a loss and gain a lesson learned.  Stick to FTDI chips if you can.

I haven't really tried using the serial cables.  How difficult is it to build your own cables using a serial plug?  Are they more reliable?

Yes it is plug and play no driver need very reliable .usb is a headache because loading driver issue.the serial it is not hard but a little tricky to build .usb i more easier to build as it require .old usb cable or some other jack or plug to go with it .i bulid one of cm 200d and 300 d cable but it only worked on the the cm 200d .i bought one of ebay but i did not worked on the cm300d.so i bought this one #OEM Motorola USB programming cable MotoTRBO CM200d, CM300d and XPR2500 PMKN4147A.
