  1. Is this transceiver programable by using PC?
    Will there be any PC software released for easy bulk programming channels into this radio?

    I can’t operate the device, the V/M function just does not work, it remains in chanel 1 and one frequency only. How can I solve the problem?

    1. andre d simmons

      I have the same problem. Cannot even program with software. Radio is just garbage. No one can help me. I want a refund or a new radio that works.
