HI people I hope someone can help. I just emptied my wallet on a new Pro-197. I managed to get it cloned from the Radio Shack I got it from. That was there extent of there help with it, I got the programming cable for it and was told it had the software to program it. I spent the $34.99 on it and found out all it had in it was the cable and a 30 day free trial software. So I got ripped. It took me a year to save the money up for the scanner and now I can't do anything more with it. I have read many posts on Win500 and ARC500 and PSRedit500. But I don't have the cash to buy anything more as I just got laid off. Can anyone help me? Is there any free software out there?
