You need RS232 drivers. Try BatLabs dot com. You can't make one from just a cable.

Hi, must have a digital trunking scanner first and foremost if you want to monitor the state radio frequencies. You much has a ham radio license or 'permit' to use the scanner or even have the scanner in you car. You can sign-up for a premium membership at Radio Reference dot com and it will set you up with direct loads of frequencies and talkgroups. Here's a link to help you:

Turn the scanner on and make sure that you don't see a "key" in the display- if you do, you first have to press and hold the key LOCK button until it beeps and allows you to use the keys. press 'manual'. press and hold 'L/O' 'lockout' for 3 seconds and it will unlock all locked out channels. now press 'scan'. if you have nothing, then press 'scan' again and press each one of the number keys to turn off and to switch on the scanning banks. Okay? Let me know if you need more help.

Press scan, then press a number button and it will scan that bank -pick a number from 0-9 and it should scan that. If you did truly lockout everything hit 'manual' then hold down the L/O Lockout button for 3 seconds and you'll hear a beep- that should unlock everything.

It would be cheaper to buy a new one than to fix the broken one.
