Reviewer: Joseph Hickerson from Redding, CA United States  
This software is much easier to work with than the Kenwood  software . One screen to work with as verses 3 different screens for Kenwood.

RTsystems and TM 281 October 3, 2018
Reviewer: david hewett from north richland hills, TX United States  
I purchased RTsystems software to simplify programing my TM281 and it is a nice tool. The program was easy to install and the instructions were easy to follow. Unfortunately, one of the best features of the program does not work as expected. The ability to pull over data from Rfinder and upload that into RT systems  does not work as specified. Rfinder has the ability to identify repeater information along a specified travel route. My RTsystems software will not load route information from Rfinder  directly into a useable file. The program will load repeater information from a single location but not the complete route.I contacted RTsystems and they were able to duplicate the problem, but have not yet provided a solution. It is possible to copy the route information directly from Rfinder into a CSV file and then copy that into RTsystems for upload to the radio but that process is inefficient. If RTsystems developers are able to correct this "bug" , I would rate the  program mush higher.
