Hi all,
Many of us are using USB to RS232 adaptors, mainly for connecting the
station PC to transceivers CAT control, ROTOR controllers, and TNCs were

Although it seems that most, if not all, of the software programs work well
under Windows 10, and updated drivers can be downloaded for most of the
hardware, relatively old USB to RS232 adaptors might have chip sets that
are not supported anymore with drivers for above Windows 7 (i.e. Windows 8
and Windows 10).
There is a utility to check the chip set version provided by the vendor.
It is highly recommended to check before starting the upgrade :)
