  1. I noticed there is software download for the RT16 and I wanted to know what programing cable is used? Can you program the CTCSS or DCS codes?

    1. Hi, for RT16, there has the software!
      if you only need to change the CTCSS or DCS, you can directly change it by its function button.
      Press Menu one time, you will see the Rx code, then press the menu again, it will offer you to change the code. Then go back to the menu, press 2 times will see the Tx code to change.

        How to change the mode from FRS to PMR on the RT16 radios? The programming cable and software is able to read the data from the radio, but writing to the radio is not possible!

        1. hi, you can not change the FRS to PMR446. Because different countries use the different band license-free radio

          1. hi, just check if two radios are in the same channel and with the same code.
