    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

    What parts of the setup are you confused about? Install? Programming?

    If you're trying to program them, I suggest you get the software to do it if you can. It's 100x easier and faster than studying the manual and using limited buttons on the radio.

    I Have the software and cable I was hoping someone had frequencies they could e mail me in the proper format so that I could upload to radio.
    Thanks for your response. This radio is more advanced than I though it would be.
