Default Almost there...

...last night I finally figured out how to import the frequency list from the Commander software into the RT Systems Programming.

My radio still will not communicate with the Commander/USB adapter setup, but will recognize the VX-7 Programmer.

Now however, while I have the radio tuned to any of the 400 frequencies, it keeps beeping every five seconds, and shifting from whichever memory recall frequency onto 144.000 with a tag MRP.

Any guesses from the HAM gallery as to what is going on?

Cheers and 73's.

I dunno, the blue tooth hand free could be the shizzle

Doing the cross band repeat thing I see no reason to leave the hammock if ya got blue tooth head set on! Most of the times these little HT's don't need any more power and can reach out and talk to whomever on their own! So hammock, cooler w beer, HT w blue tooth and two shade trees.....now thats wheelin'!

I think the icom 92ad is really cool with the gps mic.

The 3r is ridiculously cool with how small it is for hiking and you can use AA batteries with it too.

I was at hro and he said any day on the 8r.
