With the BAO-5R Programmer, you’ll begin a new “factory fresh” file into which frequencies and option settings are entered. Or, you’ll read from the radio, store these details on your computer and make changes. Then, with minimal button pushing, send the new configuration back to the radio.
The programming software permits you to create and save as many files as you need for your radio. Files can even be shared between users via email or the Internet. Managing the entire options of this radio becomes easy with this software.
The cut, copy, paste and insert features of the Programmer make channel management easier than ever. Open a couple of file at a time. Memory channel information can also be copied from one file to another within the programming software – making it truly easy to set up a new file.
The programming software supports easy interface to ARRL Commute Plus, RFinder-All over the world Repeater Directory, Radio Reference, or Repeater Book to get repeater information (separate purchase or subscription may be required).
