Monitor Mode Test with Kali Linux
The Alfa AWUS036ACHM is compatible with Linux and can go into Monitor Mode.
Running the “airmon-ng” command the adapter displays the MT7610U Chipset.
The AWUS036ACHM was automatically found by Kali Linus and had no problems with monitor mode in the 2.4GHz band.
If the adapter does not come up with “airmon-ng” run these commands.

Alfa AWUS036ACHM 802.11ac WiFi Range Boost USB Adapter
The Alfa AWUS036ACHM is a good dual band wireless USB adapter that has wide compatibility with many operating systems.
It would be a good fit with many different devices, but with its large size is likely best with a desktop.
Alfa is known for its good wireless USB adapter with many of them used in the wireless Pen Testing community.
It worked well with Kali Linux and went into monitor mode in the 2.4GHz band.
I am still testing to see how well it works in the 5GHz frequency with monitor mode.
