After getting my amateur radio licenses (over a year ago), I switched from Linux to Windows because most software for my radios seem to only target Windows. Prior to the switch, I used Linux as my main computers (laptops and servers) for over 15 years, so this was done under extreme protest. How has it been going?

HORRIBLE!

I've been having a hard time getting the Uniden SDS100 serial over USB to work with my Windows virtual machine, but finally figured it out.

My virtual machine setup

Host Machine

Using VirtualBox with Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack installed. The first thing you'll want to do after installing the Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack is to enable USB via the virtual machine's settings. I selected USB 3.0, but depending on your use case, you may have to try another option.
