The RRS-5X Radio Programming Software is designed to give you the ease and convenience of programming the memories and set menu options of your radio from your PC.

The Radio Programmer Is for so Much More than Just Memory Management.
We at RT Systems suggest you begin by doing Communications | Get Data from Radio to capture the original factory setup. Although these channels are noisy because they are in use by so many people, you want to keep them in the radio in case you need to make a call to the public in general. Save this file on your computer to capture this information for reference in the future. Then do File | Save As to start a file to customize for your group.
The Programmer allows you to create and save as many files as you want for your radio. You may want one set of frequencies for this week's location and a different group for your location next time. Creating different files makes it easy if you want to return to a configuration when you return to the same site to race.
Managing all the options of this radio is possible with the Programmer. Your radio does more than what you see in the memory channels. Check out Settings | Radio Menu Settings at the top of the screen to see what else there is available to customize the radio's performance.
Radio Menu Settings
Use this screen to customize many features of the radio. Check boxes toggle features on or off, use drop down menus list all selections and blank boxes for personalized entry add to the ease of setting up your radio exactly like you want it.
The entries on the Settings screens are made for you to “Set and Forget”. Once settings are customized, you are prompted to save before exiting. The saved settings will be there every time you create a new file for memory channels.
RT Systems programmer includes a Frequency List of often used channels. NOTE: These frequencies are all in use by others. You use it IF the licensee is not around at the moment. Always have an alternate plan in case you encounter emergency communications (fire, ambulance, 911 dispatch) or a race crew. These people own the frequency, have rights to it, and don't expect you to be there. If you are asked to move to another frequency, do it immediately and quietly (no backtalk!!).
