5 of 5 RTSystems makes programming today's radios doable. November 11, 2019
Reviewer: Nine-land ham guy from Pontiac, IL United States  
Radios of years ago sported many pushbuttons to easily make changes in settings & configurations. This also made radios large to accommodate them. In the latest concepts of small radios and cost controls, having few or fewer push buttons saves real estate and allows for smaller radios. Plus it costs less to make. The down side it forces the use of encoder knobs, nested menus & complicated displays. So it's not easy to adjust todays radios compared to yesterday's, this is where RTSystems comes in. They provide a clean, understandable method using spreadsheets along with having the hardware-specific cables available for your radio brand and model. You can backup your settings or keep multiple setups for events like Field Day, Emergency Response & local repeater use. This also allows being able to configure multiple radios the same way quickly. Depending on your brand and model, you can use a data type cable and/or a universal cable that uses audio ports. A must have for today's radios.

5 of 5 IC-2820 interface January 20, 2018
Reviewer: Greg Rauch - N6CK from Ben Lomond, CA United States  
I love your spreadsheet approach to managing the extensive radio memory capabilities.  I had only one "hitch" with the USB-29A interface cable....  My radio is installed underneath the passenger seat in our Sprinter van... and the external microphone jacks are very difficult to access.  So, I should have ordered the 2.5mm plug interface cable, which connects to the Icom radio data port.  Now in process of swapping the USB cables.  Thanks in advance for your timely support!
