This is the programming cable you need to program your Baofeng, Yaesu, Kenwood, ICOM, Wuxon, Alinco, etc. This cable has the FTDI chip within it that allows you to plug and play. You don't need to download and install extra drivers to make it work. Don't settle for any other cable. This is the real deal. If you shop on Amazon looking for a programming cable for your HTs get this cable for it has the FTDI logo and sells for $20. I highly recommend you use CHIRP software to program your HT.
