Just bought a new alinco dr135-t, (primarily since it can receive am airband), so it's brand new from hro Delaware.  Vfo mode works fine, but in memory mode it seems stuck on the "call" channel. I can reprogram the call channel frequency, and the radio switches from vfo mode to memory mode just fine, but when in memory mode I turn the knob to select a different memory number to program but it will not change from the "call" channel. I am wondering if I accidently hit the wrong combination of buttons, am I doing something else wrong?  Or am I returning this to hro tomor???  Thanks. Also, I did do a radio "reset" but it didn't help.

nevermind, problem solved.  manual is a little hard to understand on this.  to "write" into a memory channel, it must be in the "vfo" mode to select the memory channel you wish to write, not the memory mode!  I called alnico and got a really quick reply.  i am actually astonished I got someone knowledgeable and my question answered so quickly!  three cheers for alinco!

Alinco makes good gear and does good support. Programming the radio from a laptop should be doable, and you can save the setup to a file, and print it so you have a reference....
