PC equipment and software requirements


The program runs on a standard PC that has an available COM port for connection to the radio.  The COM port may be a conventional Serial port or a USB serial port.  Port numbers 1 - 32 are supported. If you are using the radio's built-in backup/restore to an SD card feature then you do not need a programming cable.

It has been developed and tested on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. It will not run on the Windows 8 RT version which does not support desktop applications

A minimum screen resolution of 800 x 600 is required, but 1024 x 768 or above is recommended. Font scaling of 96dpi (standard) and 120dpi (large) are supported; some custom sizes may give rise to problems displaying the grids.
