RT Systems FT3D Programming Experience
The FT3D software box only had the wire inside. There were instructions on how to downloaded the software from the site. It was easy to find and downloaded on the first try. I added the Key and it came right up.
It walked me through the steps to connect the radio to the computer and read it, which is nice. This appeared to be like many other programming software that I have used. Once I started programming, I noticed the frequencies can be set faster then with other programs.
After the frequencies, I set the functions the way I like them, and read it back to the radio. This software stored quickly, and every setting was correct. I have to give some credit to the menu design of the Yaesu FT3D, the menu is easy to use.
