The software for these 2 radios CANNOT be purchased as they are FREE from ICOM. They use the SAME software for both the U82 & V82, There is a box at the top of the screen marked radio. You click on this and then the 2 models show up and then all you do is to click on what model you are programming. It is interesting that the MODERATOR decided to give a warning to a member looking for the software and then closing the question all together. without going to the ICOM site and looking at the FREE DOWNLOAD area,. If the MODERATOR does NOT know what a U82 is than perhaps he should go to the ICOM AMATEUR SITE and look and not to the COMMERCIAL site. There is NO SOFTWARE to purchase moderator. Call HRO anywhere and ask them before taking it out on a member in a forum and then banning them.
