Usb-serial converter for ARC780

 

Radio friends,

I'd endorse the previous posts. And add this. If you're a hardcore cheapskate like me, you will find a USB to serial adapter at a hamfest for $1-$2 (or at rummage sale or Craigslist), download the driver, and start programming your scanner. Two (IO Gear and Radio Shack) of the 4 I bought at hamfests have worked just fine on 3 different computers, 2 running Windows XP, and one running Windows Vista.

If you buy a cable using my el cheapo method, make sure you can read the manufacturers name and model number on the cable, and/or use your phone to search the web to ensure drivers are available free on the web for the cable you are buying.

CTCSS/DCS Not working

 

I am hoping someone can help me, recently the CTCSS/DCS feature stopped working (I don't know if I hit something or what). When I select a channel or a channel keys up there is nothing lit or indicated in CTCSS/DCS field on the display. However, when I go into the menu to program a PL, it is there (like it is programmed) but still will not display or work.

I have even cloned a scanner where the feature is working and still no luck.

Hopefully someone has experienced this problem and can help me.

Thanks,
Kevin

    Volume Knob

     

    I need a replacement knob for my 780. Uniden now shows them as unavailable. Is there another knob that will fit? Or does anyone have any extras?
