Question TK-3173 UHF Handheld Transceiver

Greetings to all ! This is my first post on here so please forgive me if I am not posting this properly.

I recently was given a Kenwood TK-3173 UHF handheld transceiver that needs to be re-programmed since right now it is programmed for the previous owners with business frequencies.

I want to use this radio for amateur radio UHF use and I need to know what programming software and type of cable is required to perform this task.

I am familiar with the method since I own and programmed my Baofeng UV5R and UV3R in the past.

I assume some type of serial cable from the computer to radio is required. What type of connector for the radio's programming jack ?

Also what software is required ?

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks to all in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide. I have the User Manual but of course it doesn't mention what is required for programming the radio.
