    If this is a duplicate, I apologize. I hate this freakin editor on this website. Message disappeared right when I typed my name at the end. Has happened before and pisses me off.
    anyway, was reading on the web about my radio, and a couple of folks mentioned that it was very difficult, in their opinion, to program. DX had the software on sale, so while I won't need it for quite a while, since I can't transmit until I pass the entry level exam, I bought it at $48. They do ream you on the shipping, something like $13.99 since the software is a download and their only shipping the USB cable, but they are going to charge me full price on the software w/cable anyway, at full price.

    Any thoughts on this? Is it usable and doesn't require a Ph.D to learn? Sorry to bug you with so many questions.
    Thanks,

    @FT- I got your PM and I have no clue about the software or about any programming issues. I am still a novice with this radio and I went with it because it will take me well past intermediate level and will be applicable as I learn. When you get it figured out let me know... Just because a few guys say its difficult to program doesnt necessarily mean it is that way for everyone. YMMV
    The best way to survive a violent encounter is to be the one inflicting the most violence.

    I suppose it's just a visual way to program your radio, rather than pushing all those little buttons, and a tool just to make it much easier to do, upload via USB, rather than to enter manually. Check it out on DX's site. Thanks,
