Causes PTT lock on Baofeng UV-5R
on 13 May 2017
Received promptly, but doesn't work with either of two Baofeng UV-5Rs when connected to a Windows workstation (7 Pro). On switching on the radio, after a pause of a second or so the PTT locks on and the rig continuously transmits. The only way to stop it is to switch it off. There seems to be no possibility of programming and the rig (and possibly therefore the cable) is not recognised by Chirp. My suspicion is that the seller has obtained a new batch of knock-off cables from a differerent supplier, and these are not as compatible as those sold before now, which received better reviews than this.
