This handy cable allows control of your X1M transceiver by your computer.
Suitable for Wouxun/Xeigu X1M transceivers, including Platinum.For example, you can use remote control software like Ham Radio Deluxe or edit and backup your memory channels easily. Contest and logging software can fetch your operating frequency and mode direct from the radio. If you are working satellites, your computer can automatically track your transmit and receive frequencies and compensate for doppler shift. Some models also allow you to update the transceivers firmware.
One end of the cable has a DB9 male which connects to the COM socket on the radio. The other end has a USB plug which connects to the PC's USB port. The cable contains a USB to serial converter, so the radio appears as a COM port on the PC. Length approx 1.7m/5ft 6ins (if required, you can add a USB extension cable up to 5m long). The signals are TTL level (not RS232) as required by the X1M.
Our standard cable uses the SiLabs CP2102 USB to serial chipset.
This premium version uses the FTDI FT232RL chipset.
Both work with Windows up to version 10.
For more detailed information please read our USB chipset information page.
Please note that a CAT cable is not an audio interface for datamodes.
