CS-2200 Icom IC-2200H Programming Software full version
what i didnt know was that the rt systems cable kit did not include programming software. without a mouse and keyboard, the only way to work with the rtsystems cable kit was to use the software that came with it. this is where i broke the deal with rt systems.
i figured the software was all included on the cd-rom. but i never received it. so i called back and the guy told me that the software was not on the cd-rom, and in fact i had to purchase the software from his site.
i love rt systems programming cables, i use them on almost all my radios! they are easy to use, and very reliable, i have a few of the rt systems cable kits and even the usb cable for my computer and i have used them all with success. i use them with my icom ic-2200h and my rds express vhf and my yaesu ft-7r.
i have been using rt systems software for sometime now and found it to be instantly usable without a lot of fiddling and fussing around with operating system, comports, etc. i just last night gave chirp a try with a co-workers radio that i had no software for. first issue was the usb programming cable that came with the radio would not work with chirp. luckily i had a similar cable from rt systems which worked immediately. after that just pulling the data from the radio, adding, and changing a few things that needed correcting and then loading it back to the radio i had the unit up and running. it seemed as seamless as the rt systems i have and certainly it was cheaper. ill give it a try with some other radios i have and report back, but as far as i am concerned, if it doesnt take a lot of screwing around with operating system parameters, com ports, etc it may be worth serious consideration. kd7jb
