Default Does anyone have an FT-60 cable and SW

I bought a FT-60 for rachel and need the programming cable and SW, if anyone has it and can loan it to me to evaluate tonight, that would be great.

What's SW?

I'm so outta da loop with this programming stuff, I'm doing it manually...are there other (common) things to program besides repeaters and their access codes?

with the SW and cable you can take preset repeters and other freqs and load it easily. That way you just turn to the memchannel you need and don't have to remember all the freqs and tones and etc.

Programming is the only way to go. Once their is a program file, anyone else with a radio can be programmed in minutes.

That makes 3 of us (4 since I got one for Rachel and Sarah)

I can easily take my VX7r file and make a file

Looking at ebay ads, my VX7r cable may work. Off to search for some programming SW

Looks to be the same as my VX-7 SW from the same person. I'll likely buy that another day and see if it works with my cable.

The VX cable didn't work so I ordered one off ebay. I have the SW and the load from my other radios. Once I get it going I'll post up and would be happy to program other radios or I can post the file and loan you the cable.
