    It appears I am technically challenged. I have a Yaesu VX-8dr handheld ham radio and a Yaesu Ft-8900 Mobile radio. I can not get these set up for the life of me. Is anyone in the orlando area famiiar with these. I could sure use some help, I would even be willing to pay fo your time to help me setup these radios.
    Thanks

    I've heard of that shop and I'm in Texas. Truckers talk about when they are headed east on 1-10 and need a good shop for some reason.

    Craig,

    I assume you are having programming troubles? RT Systems makes some good software that allows you to use your computer to program your rigs.

    Have you visited AES in Orlando and asked if they could get your started? Maybe they can suggest a local radio club with someone who can assist.

    I agree.... The RT Systems software makes it much easier. I have an 8900 in my truck and a 7800 that I use in my shack.
