Great Value!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I already had a programming cable for my VX7R so I got a Radio Shack 26-149A 6 foot Keyboard Mouse extension cable and rounded off the square part of the mini din plug so it would fit the rig. Made a pigtail with that and a Radio Shack 274-274 three conductor 1/8" inline phone jack. I exported my VX7R data to a CSV file and imported into the FTB8900 program and programmed the rig with no fuss. This took all of about 15 minutes. Happy Puppy Here!

Excellent VFM!!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
For £10 you really can't go wrong here, it makes programming the FT-8900 an absolute doddle an appears to be bug free! I use an Icom interface I've re-wired for my VX-2 with a 3.5 stereo to a 6 pin mini-Din adaptor. The program can also import csv file from other programas such as VX2 commander so you only need have 1 master memory csv file for numerous rigs (I also use an FT-7800 for which a verison is also availabe)

If you aren't into constrution see http://g4zlp.co.uk/CATpage.htm for range of inexpensive interfaces and remember, Yaesu mobiles, VX handhelds and Icom seem to use the same interface, it's just the connectors that vary.

Super software for the Yaesu FT-8900R  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Way better than the Yaesu/RT Systems stuff, this is the best for this radio. And Bob's support is fantastic - if only all ham software was as good as this. (He really should be charging more!)

Does everything it says, and easily.
