Here (http://www.hamcity.com/detail.aspx?ID=1537)you can just toss money and get all you need at once! Or you cna order the software and bargain find your cables on E-bay or you can snoop it all out via e-bay or???? I know there are a couple in the club with 7800 software but I'm sure they would never dream of pirating a copy for you as thats just not legal like.

There are two SW pacakages, thats why The link I posted and Kevin posted have different SW. I bought the one I did after reading reviews on http://www.eham.net/ The one Kevin linked to is the official Yaesu package.

FWIW - I bought both the official Yaesu package for the VX-7 and also got the aftermarket VX commander and prefer the after market packake. I have not tried the Yaesu package for the 7800. I programmed both Matt's and my radio with it fairly easily.
