Larry-PRO-106/197 or GRE500/600 all the same. Some replys may mention BC996 ect but programming a BC is a much bigger task than PRO/GRE types. Good Luck.

Give Larry a break. The OP asked for recommendations, and that's what Larry offered. Agree with his wording or not, he answered the question.
lol, i love all my Butel software but I might break down and try Freescan one day, i really do hate paying 40$ bucks for software to program my radio once a month! lolAlmost as bad as some of the fake names saying how good it is to program using one of their paid programs compared to Freescan.
Suggesting that one brand or the other is any easier to program is a flawed statement as we all know the radios are very complex no matter whose name is stamped on the outside.
