W7 USB-serial N1MM

Image
Today Friday 13 ...I went to PC shops hoping to find  an FTDI  based USB -serial.
It was again a beautiful summer day I was on my racing bike in Groningen where we have a number of  PC / Electronic shops  like Saturn Mediamarkt and more. I could only get a Sweex USB-serial but that one is using also Prolific chips and drivers I saw to late when i was home again no use to try that one it has  the same drivers.  There was a big crowd around the canal harbour  where the brand new  special "Eco"Sailing ship ECOLUTION  was lauched.  A project of  Prof Wubbo Ockels . Our own Groninger Space Shuttle astronaut (1985 Oktober)  brain of many innovative projects.



Okay back to my subject..
This morning I tested real on  50MHz  after 2 logging's  suddenly the frequency ruler jumped into red and the input field was cleared again while I was trying to log a DL QSO ....    very sorry  but  the problem still exists ... So back to old  W2000 PC then... pity.

FTDI  chips/drivers do not see…
