I have attempted twice to add a VHF/UHF handheld and each time the unit I purchase would not program.
I have to be honest, it’s most likely me, and the computer I have. I have been able in both cases to sell the radios for what I paid for them. And in both cases, the person who purchase them has been able to program them. The second by using an old laptop computer that he had sitting around after having no luck with the computers he uses daily. That tells you something.
I think this next time, I’m going to have to bite the bullet and spend some money, stop trying to get the lowest price, get a radio with a proven track record from a Major Company.
