Yep.   It a purely USB device without a removable/adaptable cable 
assembly.   As I said in a previous post, this device WILL ONLY WORK 
WITH A PC. 


On a PC, a suitable software driver can make it look like a virtual 
serial port for the benefit of programs such as APRS applications that 
don't know how to talk to USB.        It will be totally unusable 
directly with a non-PC serial-interfaced device like a TinyTrack, D700, 
TNC, etc....
