My TRX-1 will be here tomorrow and I'm looking for the best & easiest software to program it with. Any suggestions? Don't mind paying for it if it's easy and simple. Thanks
Agree 100% to this. EZ-Scan isn't that "EZ" and the YouTube videos did not provide much detail.I guess EZ Scan it is, just didn't look like very user friendly software to me and all the video's I watched on You Tube were rather confusing or didn't really go into much detail about using the software. Oh well, forward we go
Thats a great site for lots of radio/scanning stuff. Thanks for sharingThis might also help....
Yep, this ^^^^! I grew up programming scanners (and ham radios) by hand, before there were scanners that could be programmed via software. Anytime I get a new radio, I always take time to program it first by hand... even if it's just a couple conventional freqs and a control channel & a few TGs of a trunked system. That pays dividends later as you will be able to correlate what the software is doing vs. what you'd do by hand. Also, if you have to add a freq or TG on the fly without access to a computer, you've already done it, so it should be easy-peasy.EZScan is extremely powerful and simple to use. It has some limitations due to DRM placed on the developers. The reason people have initial problems with EZScan is the people not the software. If you take the time to understand the architecture of the radio you are trying to program then the software is very intuitive and powerful. But human nature is to blame the product and not the user. It all started when IBM laid on people the biggest lie ever when PC's first came out. Push the "on" button and everything you want to do will happen - fake news, lol.
Took me a day of playing with it but it's coming together. Not really that hard once you use it for awhile. Enjoy!Agree 100% to this. EZ-Scan isn't that "EZ" and the YouTube videos did not provide much detail.
But.... after much playing with the software, it all of a sudden made sense. I've got a TRX-1 coming today (yippee) so I've been attempting to get
EZ-Scan all set up and ready for it over the weekend.
