XLT Painless Programming Cable for Baofeng, Kenwood, and Wouxun - Reviews

Take the pain out of programming your Baofeng (Pofung), Kenwood, or Wouxun radio with the XLT RPC-K1-UF Painless Programming Cable! Let's face it, some USB programming cables use cloned or counterfeit Prolific chips, making driver installation a pain. Why torture yourself with a cheap imitation?… more

  • They failed to mention it has RX/TX LEDsA+

Comments:

I plugged this in to two different Macs (running 10.10.x and 10.11.x) and it just works. Much better than fighting with different drivers. Haven't tried on Windows 7 computer yet, but it's already stated to work on there. They didn't mention that it has RX/TX lights. That is a big plus. If you plug into a laptop, they might be facing down, but if you use a USB extension you can flip it around. Build quality feels nice too.

I was highly disappointed in the cable and software. I was told that with this cable setting up my radio would be a breeze. Well after several attempts by several people I am no farther ahead then when I purchased it. What a waste of money. I definately would not recommend this item

Fiddled around with another cable for awhile, trying to trim it to fit and get it to work on my UV-5R. It would only work intermittent, never got a full download or upload. Got the painless programming cable, plugged it in and it worked right out of the box. Definitely worth it.

I have 4 HT and all are more easily programmed by PC. Using QUIRK, there are no issues except with the Baofeng UV-6R. Nothing programs it, not even Baofeng software. This Painless cable outperforms any other OEM cable hands down. Effortless programming using a variety of programming software. Pay the money-get the satisfaction of accomplishment. It's that easy.

  • Could Use A Direction Man

BEST USES

Comments:

Cable performs as advertised. Cable appears to be very durable as do the connectors. Programming chip appears to work instantly. Fit to Baofeng radio is tight and secure when programming. Lack of instruction sheet or manual could be improved.
