The ONLY software & cable that works!! April 23, 2018
Reviewer: Bill from Houston, TX United States  
I purchased a Leixen VV-898 (v1.08) radio, and manually programmed in a couple of channels to see if the radio worked. It did.

I tried using the Leixen software to program the radio, but it seems that the software version is behind the radio version. It didn't work.

I also tried a popular freeware software program. No joy. Again, a version mismatch.

Having used several RTSystems software/cable packages I knew that I could count on RTSystems to provide a functional programming capability.

I was right. The RTSystems software and cable worked immediately out of the box. No problems.

While spending $50 for software and a cable to support a $60 radio may seem unreasonable, in the end I got a working, programmable radio for $110 total. Not bad.

Great Products April 23, 2018
Reviewer: Jeffrey Richardson from San Bernardino County, CA United States  
I use several of RT Systems programming cables and software. Every system works great and so easy to use. It's great to "cut and paste" from one system to another. I program hundreds of radios for our County Disaster Communications Preparedness Program using ham radio, it makes my job so much easier.
Thanks for a top notch product!!
