Ham Radio Programming Software


For over 23 years, RT Systems has produced the most up-to-date amateur radio software for all the top radio manufacturers. Along with the most reliable software, RT Systems makes the best cables for programming and/or control. RT Systems invented amateur radio programming in 1995 when the Yaesu FT-11 "cloned" and we wondered if we could get it to talk to a computer instead of another radio.... we did, and the rest is history.

RT Systems provides a system that works! The system includes an RT Systems Programmer designed specifically for your radio (nothing extra to wade through) and a RT Systems USB cable designed to work with your radio and eliminate com port setup. If you already have the correct RT Systems cable for the software, you can purchase and download the RT Systems programmer directly to your computer and use it to program your new radio immediately. You can even copy and paste details from one programmer to another so the file started for the new radio can be ready to go in minutes!


It's sooooo easy...

Skip the knob turns and button presses on the radio.

The Programmer brings ALL the features of the radio to the computer screen where they are easily managed.

Each Programmer is designed for a specific radio model.

You can program your radio without having to wade through options that don’t apply to your radio.

What our customers are saying about us...

"I've been using RT Systems programming software and cable for years and have always been 100% satisfied. Monday for the first time, I ordered the electronic download version for my Wouxun KG-UV5D. The download and installation only took a few minutes and within 15 minutes I was entering data.

I use RT systems software for my Kenwood, Yaesu and now Baofeng and Wouxun radios. These cables ALWAYS work and ALWAYS find the COMM ports!"

- K9RRX in Kalamazoo, MI

"I am a retired guy who often has issues with software and computers, but even I had my Baofeng UV-5R connected and talking to your software literally within 10 minutes after I opened the box! This software is very cool, I spent the afternoon downloading repeaters from the Repeater Base to RT Systems and then to my radio for an upcoming RV trip. Thank you for making this process such an easy experience, it makes me feel very empowered that I can talk to my radio all by myself. All I can say is WOW! What fabulous customer service and products!"

- K6HOM in Sacramento, CA

"Your program was one of the best investments I have made in all my years in Ham Radio. I’m sure the cost of your program is offset by the hours others spend trying to get “free” programs to do what they want it to do."

- WB8BTI in Napoleon, Ohio

"Thank you RT Systems for providing excellent software, cables and tech support. You are the first company that I’ve found in many, many years of buying ham radio items that actually takes the time with your tech support to insure that each customer’s questions are completely answered. On every occasion that I’ve called or emailed, your support was instant as well as complete. Many companies claim that they support their software and hardware, then say, ‘Your lack of knowledge of how to use your radio is not our problem’. By contrast, RT Systems asks ‘What radio are you using?’ and walks the customer through each step to get the job done, providing EXCELLENT SERVICE!"

- KD0ZK in Boynton Beach, FL

"I have tried free software available elsewhere, and concluded that it is made for people who’d rather solve programming puzzles than get on the air."

- WS7SAR in Placerville, California

"When it comes to electronic stuff I’m a BIG Dork. I must have called RT Systems tech support seven or eight times with questions or asking for help. Customer Service and product quality are the two things that can make or break a company. The level of service provided by Domenic and Matt give will keep me coming back."

- N8MHF in Glendale, California

"Learning that the USB-62 cable does both programming AND control with HRD just makes my week! This is one less cable I am hauling out in the woods and one less connection needed. Now I want to order more so that I can do away with the third party cables and utilize my RT cables.

The really cool thing about my investment in your products is the Customer Service. Every time I have had a question, issue, suggestion or inquiry, you all have been right there as if I was your only customer. That just affirms my choice in choosing RT Systems products."

- W8QAS in Caneyville, Kentucky

"I spent countless hours trying to program my Baofeng radio with their software and USB cable with no success. After purchasing a RT Systems cable and software kit everything worked great! It took more time for my computer to start up than it did to get the software and cable to work. Thank you so much."
