If not load the printer with plenty of paper! The arc996 pdf i got has 95 pages...
OK i seen that and I got it hooked up I only get 15 min a session but I thought it was just somthing that will tell you if your radio is doing somthing wrong LOL!!!!!!! So what all can you do with this thingmcscanner said:It puts a window on you computer screen that mimics the face of your radio screen including the buttons. Allowing you to see and control what your radio is doing without looking at the physical radio.
OK Thanks !!!!barry008 said:My virtual control puts up a window that mimics the face plate of my 996 and it allows me to control the scanner with my mouse. I believe it also uses the same communication to program TGs and frequencies in. It also shows the basically the same reaadout that the radio is displaying. Be sure to have the data rate (baud) so that it will communicate correctly. I got to take my son lunch right now but when i return i will send you the pdf i have.
