Doesn't work well on DJ-500TB February 12, 2018
Reviewer: Mike Elgin from Estes Park, CO United States  
The Alinco DJ-500TB is the commercial version of the DJ-500 handheld radio.  It is capable of transmitting outside of the normal HAM bands.  The RT Systems software can read from the radio just fine but will not write to the memory channels.  It just gives an error that the frequency range doesn't match.

If you put the radio into a HAM band only mode, the software works just fine.  Unfortunately, this software won't work with the expanded frequency range offered by the radio.

I do not recommend this software for the DJ-500TB model.  Should work fine for the DJ-500 HAM band only model.

Reviewer: John Lea from Chandler, AZ United States  
Product was delivered in a timely fashion, and worked as advertised. So much easier than trying to input several hundred repeaters one at a time. I'll be buying a few more copies for the other brands of radios I own.
