The clone application, does not install on 64bit VISTA.
I had to re-install back to 32 bit.
My radio program, co-operates with 32 bit.

#
I am using, a USB to COM Port adapter lead.
Also installed the device driver file.
In 'device manager', it appears as "Prolific serial bridge COM PORT 5".
I read radio program. Then re-edit it.

#
File is saved, then i send data to radio via laptop.
You will notice that white lead, is plugged into transceiver.
The other end, is in USB port of laptop.
I never thought, a highly specced gaming notebook, could program a UHF two way radio.

##


You will notice a clone progress bar.



The progress bar has increased.
This means, the cloning is almost complete.
Yes, the "Simoco" clone is quite rapid.

:lol: :lol: :shades:

I think the world of my radio technician. He is a thorough gentleman, plus electronics genius.
Yes i respect his skills. It is not, a genuine OEM clone lead.
This lead is a special edition.
He improvised it for me.
#
I have a ,certain portion of lead hidden.
This was intentional. For privacy reasons and security.
Do not want my, radio community being too nosy.
Otherwise their reaction would be: AAAAH! I wander what that is?
**
My reply would be," Never you mind". There has to be some intrigue.

Sorry JIMMYJOHN. I am not sure, if it is possible with my radio.
My transceiver is a UHF. It is classed as a UW-H : 440 to 520 Mhz.
It is P25 digital upgradeable.
Capable of the trunk network. But i am not licensed for trunking.

Me and a friend can send each other, phone style text messages.
Similar to SMS text messaging.
When he sends text, i can hear a data sound.
An envelope shows on my screen.
Then an audible sound, plus " Confirmed" appears.
#
I go to my stored calls menu.It has " Data Msg" on display.
Then i press a button, to read his text messages.
Sometimes he sends a few pages.
My text back to him is brief. He types and edits very rapid.

#
We enjoy it, as there is lots of laughing.
I can not afford a mobile phone.
So i do not mind ,sending text via a two way radio.
We can adjust our, FFSK Data transmission rate. This is for, 1200 or 2400 baud FFSK.

This "texting" via UHF intrigues me. is that the function of that box, or has it been modded to perform this task?

The transceiver has a lot of functions.
Text messaging is one of them.
SMS is enabled as factory default.

Then it is, activated via the software.
That heat sink ,does not need to be modded.
