    I've got one now if you want to borrow it..

    One of the universal programming cables with ends for a variety of radios.

    For something that may make you scratch your head though..

    According to the spec sheets, those two radios need/use different programming cables. :)

    Edit:  Scratch that..  My cables are TTL, your radios want full RS-232.  Really simple to make though..  haha  :)  I did confirm, your radios need different cables.  One is 2.5mm and the other is 3.5mm

    Do you know the pinout it wants?

    Ring, sleve, tip?

    But I am going to guess someone might have a proper cable for you..  ;)

    Does anyone out there have a Icom Programming cable to program a few radios with CHIRP?

    It's a USB to a 3.5 mm stereo tip plug.  I've seem then called OPC-478 but dunno if thats accurate or not? 

    Anyway I'm trying to program a ICom 2200H and a IC-91AD and hand bombing sucks!  (grin)  I'd like to borrow it for a day or two and just tell me what brand of beer you like to drink!!  :-)
