Good afternoon all.

Hope all is well. Forgive me if this has been posted in the wrong place .

Have just purchase a uniden usc230. As the data cable is serial I have bought a serial to usb adaptor with a view to copying the channels from a friend's exact same model. Unfortunately Windows 10 won't pick up my scanner so I've had to add some normal channels manually.

I've got my local airports addedd and working. I never seem to pick up anything by using the close call feature but am interested in the local ship traffic including the life boat and coastgaurd as I'm right next to the Thames estuary. Does anyone know any good channels I can add. I'm located in canvey island Essex.

Many thanks in advance

I suspect the data cable issue is the old chestnut of it being a two quid cable from China and has a knock-off Prolific chip, you need to remove the driver W10 assigned and put in and older version. Here's the top hit on Google for that issue, there are billions more. ... e-10-error
