Software for Icom IC-R10

Post by Scanner1953 »

I’m considering purchasing the https://www.rtsystemsinc.com/WCS-R10-Pr ... p_679.html. I already have a generic OPC-478 programming cable, does anyone know whether this would work with the software? Also has anyone got experience of using this software.

Thanks from a newbie.

Looks like they are pointing you towards the cable in that link. I have an IC-R10 and a generic OPC-478 cable but haven’t tried programming it yet. Too many Baofeng drivers etc on the Laptop as it is! To be honest I’m more likely to trade it in for a Bearcat 3600xlt.

Thanks Chris,

Yes the RT Systems kit comes complete with its own cable but at £50+ its not cost effective to program just a few channels on my scanner. I was hoping to find a software only solution to use with my own cable, so far it appears only older DOS based programs are available. Guess I’ll just have to do it the manual way from the IC-R10 keypad!
