I have downloaded software for the HT1000 but software was for UHF and all of these radios are VHF. My rib cable powers up and I have used it to program my CP200 back about 7 or 8 years ago. I have a couple of older computers with windows xp on them and one with windows7. Iam new here and haven't done any programming for a good while. I would like to Purchase updated hardware cables if thats what I need or if someone could show me where to download the software I need and how to fix my com port problem. Also tell me how to do gift points for someones help.
