2016-08-30 20:13:01.927256 K5WXL CheckIn SE Lawton baofeng, use chirps, sometimes the cable doesn't work, usually because it doesn't plug in all the way, always use chirp for chinese radios, use rt systems for non chinese radios, really like it, can pull in from various internet sources, does proximity search as well, does have downfalls, mostly the problems associated with repeater book and rfinder, like invalid data: repeaters from yaesu are front panel, most of the link system is motorola repeaters with specific programming cables, the older machines use a dos program, that cannot use a pentium processor with, have to use a really old computer, cement and 525 are newer and have windows programming software, programming controllers there is a windows based programming soft, moto stuff is not geared for amateur use so has a ton of options, programming r100s, need a tone board soldered to the controller on the repeater, had to modify, waiting on the water tower to be finished, so access is limited, but once done, will get the 147.330 back on the air with fusion, have internet with wiresx as well
