    I am a newcomer to PICs and just recently got a TechTools PICwriter(Actually the PIC16Cxx-PGM by Parallax that has the newer firmware) but the Serial Protocol Adapter was not with it. A phone cable plugs into it and the other end goes to a serial port. I have the phone cable. Just no adapter. I suspect it only uses three wires too. I understand this is an old unit and there are lots of better ones out there but this will be fine to learn on until I get more proficient in programming. Besides. the new ones are $10. Does anyone have an adapter that they could measure the pinout so I can make one. Or perhaps one I might buy outright. I am new to this forum so if this is improperly posted I apologize in advance. Thanks! Phil Cline
