I used it to program memory in a Yaesu FT-60 and it was neither troublesome nor problematic. Of course, I know nothing of your experience with computers so I can't say what your experience will be. But in general it's no more difficult than running any of the PC applications.
Here's the dilemma: I installed the runtime Python program on my MAC. They I downloaded Chirp v 0.2.2. When I access the program with the radio plugged in it asks for a port. There are only 2 choices and neither work. Here's the error message generated:
"An error has occurred. Radio not responding."
The SW is reading - or trying to read the radio. I think it needs a USB driver. Any suggestions?
Perhaps I could get a link to a USB driver. I am trying to get a Wouxun UV3D connected to my iMac running OS X 10.8.1. I found a Prolific driver that shows as a choice in Chirp but it will not recognize the HT. Thanks.
