    I tried it with my Yaesu HT. I couldn't clone with it. I hope you will have more luck with your radio.

    It will probably work with Bofang radios, it just didn't work receiving data from my Yaesu. I've got all freqs programmed on each radio individually.

    PM sent. Thanks!

    I hope I can get it to work. I've already had to invest some time to get it to load on a mac.

    I thought this was kind of cool. It was featued in this months Popular Mechanics and is being used in the relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

    Sync a goTenna to your phone to send messages and your location to another goTenna via UHF and VHF frequencies. The new Mesh network turns every unit into an encrypted relay station to extend the range.
