You can use Butel ARC-500 software to program that scanner. It has RR support.
The Pro subscription is more the worth it. It's pretty easy with the software.

$70.00 is a little steep for me right now, is there anything cheaper that you know of? something that comes with the subscription from RR?

There is no software programming that comes with the RR premium subscription.

The 3 choices of software packages for your scanner that will use the Web Programming feature of the RR premium subscription are WIN500, PSREdit500, and ARC500.

They all have free 30 day, fully functional, trial periods.

PSREdit500
is my favorite. It's not free, but it does have a free 30-day trial period. After that a license it only $35.

I like Win97 for the Pro-163.

In your case it would be Win500. I haven't used Win500 myself so I don't know if there are major differences.

Incorrect; We have a deal with BuTel where RR resells ARC500, and when you do this, you get 2 free downloads for a period of 7 days. See the following links for more information;

I have often wondered why Lindsay didn't trumpet this when the deal was made, and has made the page a bit tough to find. Mike

blue4x, you can find links for the 3 programs that are compatible with your 106 - ARC500, PSREdit500 and Win500 - here...

Object Oriented Scanner Software - The RadioReference Wiki

Note that there is also a documented way to run some of these programs under Linux, if you happen to be under that environment
