That's why you may want to use the ADMS-VX6 software from RT Systems, which makes it easy to set up memory channel details, tones, scanning options, and more.
In this article, we will show you how to use the ADMS-VX6 software to program your Yaesu VX-6 radio. You will need a Windows or Mac computer, a USB-57B cable from RT Systems, and the ADMS-VX6 software. You can purchase the software and cable as a kit from RT Systems or other authorized dealers.
Step 1: Install the ADMS-VX6 Software
Before you can use the ADMS-VX6 software, you need to install it on your computer. You can download the software from the RT Systems website or use the CD that comes with the kit. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the software. You may need to restart your computer after the installation.
Step 2: Connect Your Yaesu VX-6 Radio to Your Computer
Next, you need to connect your Yaesu VX-6 radio to your computer using the USB-57B cable. The cable has a USB connector on one end and a 4-pin connector on the other end. Plug the USB connector into a free USB port on your computer and plug the 4-pin connector into the MIC/SP jack on the side of your radio.
Make sure your radio is turned off before you connect it. Also, make sure you have fresh batteries in your radio or use an external power source.
Step 3: Run the ADMS-VX6 Software
Now you are ready to run the ADMS-VX6 software on your computer. You can find it in your Start menu or Applications folder. When you launch the software, you will see a spreadsheet-like interface with tabs for different settings and features of your radio.
You can either start from scratch or read the current configuration from your radio. To read from your radio, click on File > Read Data from Radio. A dialog box will appear asking you to turn on your radio and press any key. Do so and wait for the software to read your radio data.
Step 4: Edit Your Radio Data
Once you have read your radio data or created a new file, you can edit it using the ADMS-VX6 software. You can change various settings such as frequency, mode, tone, name, offset, power, scan mode, etc. for each memory channel. You can also edit other options such as DTMF memories, pager tones, display settings, etc.
You can use the mouse or keyboard to navigate and edit the data. You can also copy and paste data between cells or files. You can also import data from external sources such as online repeater directories or CSV files.
Step 5: Write Your Radio Data
When you are done editing your radio data, you need to write it back to your radio. To do so, click on File > Write Data to Radio. A dialog box will appear asking you to turn off your radio and press any key. Do so and wait for the software to write your data.
After the writing is complete, you can disconnect your radio from your computer and turn it on again. You should see your new settings and frequencies on your radio display.
The ADMS-VX6 software is a useful tool for programming your Yaesu VX-6 radio. It saves you time and hassle by allowing you to edit your radio data on your computer screen. You can also access more features and options than using the keypad of your radio.
