How to Use Your RM45-U Programmer
The RRS-45U Radio Programming Software is designed to make it easier to program your radio. Details of memory channels and other set menu options of your radio are in the program to access and study at your pace. No more “function key frustration” from trying to set options from the face of the radio.
Memory Channels Include:
Other Menu Item Categories Include:
The Radio Programmer Is for so Much More than Just Memory Management.
The programming process begins by first installing the program then installing (and allowing) the drivers for the cable. Be sure to complete both of these steps.
Save your file as you work. This is a computer, after all, and you would hate to lose your work should the system fail. Actually, create and save as many files as you want or need. You could have one file for home, a different one for the vacation house, another for the trip to your son’s house, another for the yearly 3K run and picnic where you help direct traffic and want the radio to be programmed with only the frequencies for that event. Remember, radio programming is an overwrite process. Everything in the radio is replaced by everything in the file.
Limit Memories are used by the radio for Program Scan. Program the same details for Limit Memories as for regular memory channels. Many of the Limit Memories are preprogrammed in the radio and while the frequency can be changed to another within the band, they cannot be left blank.
The program makes available the same VFO’s as in the radio (usually one per band). Remember these are not real memory channels since the details are lost as soon as you tune the radio manually. There is no one button recall for these. You do not need to program into VFO before programming details into a memory channel. These channels are preprogrammed in the radio and while the frequency can be changed to another within the band, they cannot be left blank.

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!!).
