Title: Programming software for Yaesu - Chirp vs. ADMS
Post by: WB6DNL on August 26, 2017, 01:19:37 PM
I’ve got some questions regarding programming software for Yaesu VHF gear.

(1) What are the pros and cons of Chirp vs ADMS (beyond price)?

(2) If you have ADMS software for one Yaesu (e.g., an FT-7900), can you use what you’ve programmed in and download it to different Yaesu (e.g., an FT-60)?

Thanks,
Dave

With my VX-7r, CHIRP accesses a couple functions ADMS seems to ignore.

With ADMS, to a limited extent I can copy/paste the spreadsheet-formatted frequency/tone info from VX-7r to an FT-8900r. Haven't tried this with CHIRP.

I use RT Systems software for all my Yaesu radios. It works and does what I need. Never tried Chirp.

I've only used CHIRP, with my FT-817ND.  It was very easy to use, can download freqs from various websites but some require a fee.  Many other frequencies available other than ham bands.
