Hi Aleksandar,

The programming cable is a straight forward affair, a simple TX/RX/GND type connection.

I use the CP2102 USB modules for such programming interfaces, (search eBay etc. for "CP2102"), and never have issues with Windows or Linux unlike the 'Prolific' types.


A simple 3 wire interface example can be found here :-

https://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_ProgrCable8900.php


The connector on the radio is a 3 pin type, GND - Ground is the middle connector and the other two are TX & RX data. (You may have to switch these around anyway....and it won't hurt anything. Wink )



If it helps the schematics for such radios, (and their model variants), are available here :-

http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/crt/ss6900/index.htm


Hope that helps.  diy ss6900n programming cable 1f44d 

All the best,
Victor

Good info there Victor.
Not in any rush to make one but found the CP 2102 on the bay for £2.90 posted and in the uk ??.

Hi Aleksandar,

Yes, same principles, just a simple 'serial' port interface.

Best of luck with your project.  diy ss6900n programming cable 1f44d

Hi Alan,

Yep, those are the kitties. Smile

Always handy to have a few laying around, (well I do), for just such things. The nice thing is you know what you're getting unlike some unbranded 'usb/serial' cable so you won't face all the 'Prolific' nonsense.

Windows won't always recognise them, (none of my Windows version including 10 will?!!), but the drivers are simply available from Silicon Labs :-

Glad it was of help.

Oh, BTW that cb-tricks site is worth a scout around if you need schematics for other radios.


All the best,
Victor

Hello everyone and thanks for posting about this programming cable. I made one myself and I just signed up to post this warning to others: this cable that Aleksander made will NOT fit your CRT SS6900N, not if it is like mine, anyway. The green, red and black connectors that he shows in his pic that are supposed to connect to the board look exactly like the ones I bought, and they are too big for my board and will not connect. The difference is tiny, but if you look at the connectors on these cables sold on ebay, they are indeed different.

Sorry, I have no idea what the correct connector is called.

Good dx!
