As more and more radio manufacturer shift over from serial to some sort of USB-protocol, I wonder if there are any plans to support USB devices in the near future? libusb might be the proper library to be used therefor.

Help. I have Windows 7 laptop with USB port and BTECH USB data cable and Chirp (2/21/2019) cannot find a port.
What do I do to get it to recognize the USB BTECH connection?
