Check here for the best software I've found for the Yaesu FT-8900R:  http://www.dxzone.com/cgi-bin/dir/jump2.cgi?ID=3158

The junk offered by RT Systems is pure CRAP. I won't buy anything offered by those people, and their customer service is NON-EXISTENT. Loads of issues with everything they put out. But the above link is for the FTB8900 software, which works perfectly every time.

FTB8900 software is the only way to go if you have an FT-8900R radio.

I found that website shortly after I posted and downloaded his software. It appears easy to use and I am in the process of gathering the frequencies I want to program into the radio.

thanks

Glad to hear your going to use FTB8900 software!

Another good reference is to read the reviews on this site of both types of software. It will be clear as crystal after you read the reviews as to which software is preferred by those who actually use either type.

Good choice though by using FTB8900.
