Thumbs up

t0xPro-197:

Odd.... That 396 should have come with a programming cable and a BNC to SMA adapter....

'Course, if it's used, who knows?

You want to subscribe to the Radio Reference feed to download frequency lists that some of the available software (ProScan - $$$ - or FreeScan can stuff into your radio quickly, too.)

Trying to do it without the software will give your headache a headache....

Enjoy!

He will need a USB-serial cable which is not included in the package, as most PCs nowadays don't have serial ports. It seems odd, frankly, since the PSR500 and 600 both came with their own USB cable.

The cable that it does come with is to connect with a serial port...(I also have a 396T....)
