    Our license currently indicates a 2 watt maximum power. I am trying to find out from the FCC if we can increase that number. I will post something when/if I hear back from them with regard to changing our license.

    I'm not having much luck with the FCC. I did look at the manual for the radio and it can be operated at 1 watt of power which works with our license. The club owns a programming cable so if you need your radio programmed with the Club set up bring it to a meeting and I'll take care of the programming. It only takes a few minutes.

    Hmm, that link no longer works. 

    Will this radio work?

    I have a programming cable also, can you send me the file?  Or hang it on this web so one may download it?
