    Does anyone have any experience with using the adms7 software? I can not for the life of me get it to program my ftm-400xdr. I've tried to use an sd card and hoot the base to my laptop with out any luck.

    You do have the USB cable to connect the FTM-400 to the computer? The first time you connect the radio to the computer the software will need to read the radio as the first step - apparently so they know each other. If you have entered data into the file before connecting the radio, the data you entered will be replaced by the radio data unless you tell the software to load into a different file. After that it is a matter of connecting the radio to the computer, selecting the communication mode, deciding whether to read the radio or send data to the radio and follow the instructions on screen.

    Ditch the Yaesu software and get the RT Systems software instead. It works the first time and every time. The only complaint I've ever heard or seen about RT Systems is that they didn't make software for a particular radio.

    Aggreed get the RT software, When I got my FTM400 I had the same issue. Ended up driving back down to HRO to buy the RT software. I wrote to Yeasu and suggest they not offer the adms software any more.

    When Fusion first came on the market, we had a club presentation about it from the (at-the-time) national Sales Manager for Yaesu. When someone made a comment about difficulties with Yaesu's ADMS software, his statement was something like "Yaesu builds radios. We are not a software development company."

    When I first became licensed, I bought a Yaesu FT-270R. I bought programming software for it from HRO that came in a plain brown box with the Yaesu logo on it. When I opened it up, I found an RT Systems disc and cable.

    I have programmed my FTM-400XDR with the ADMS software. It's been over a year ago and I only did it once. As I remember it was a tedious procedure. You had to push the exact right button and computer keys in the exact sequence or it wouldn't work. The directions given could have been interpreted several different ways. I eventually figured out the proper sequence through trial and error and it worked pretty well after that but it was difficult to decipher the first time.

    I was using yeasu programming software and the SD card but not my radio is not reading it. Radio works fine just being a little aggravating.
