    This is not manual programming, this is programming by computer!
    Manual programming is just using the keyboard. Please tell me how to get an analogue frequency, such as PMR 446 programmed; so far I get it usable, but I seem unable to get a two analogue frequencies on the radio’s display at the same time; always it is one digital & one analogue, even if I want TWO analogue channels showing.

    1. hi, the VFo mode can help you set your Vfo MODEL with the PMR446 frequency, but you can not save it as a channel!
      The best way to save all PMR446 frequencies is programming by software
