The problem is not what I see, but what I don't see with that kit.

- no case or enclosure

- no readout or any way to determine which frequency you are on

It looks like it's strictly a hobbyist's toy.

There is an additional kit that apparently shows a lot. I just thought it was interesting, at least for conversation. My big issue is that I doubt it has been tested like the big radios for it to be clean. Still a neat little project, though. even for discussions sake.

The radio I got came with the cable and I've downloaded Chirp quite a few times. I 110% agree with you in trying to program Yaesu, Icoms, etc.. It's a shame there isn't an east cheat sheet. Used be years ago some folks were making cheat sheets for radios like the ICOM 706 and selling them. Wish I could find one for the 706, HTX 242, and the Baofengs as well.

My Baofeng is great at gathering dust..
