  1. where can I find the programming software for this radio that I am starting to think I wasted 113 bucks on

  2. How do you enter VFO mode on the radio? It starts as channel mode and not clear in manual

    1. the display need to show the MR mode or frequency mode. Press menu, choose the Diplay mode( menu 33), choose MR or Freq. Then press confirm, then go to the home page, press the button # radio button( short press), it will enter into the VFO mode, please have a try
