I agree with you here and that is my main use for it.
I went to alot of trouble to program 100 freq and text for N AL.
Later I deleted those banks for more Ga. programing.
I had to go to N AL yesterday and I found the stuff in a capture
file that I had made when dumping the AR8000. A quick trip to
WINWORD to cut the data and replace the ALPHA part of the address
which selects the destination bank and 6 seconds later the scanner
was programed again for AL by merely 'uploading' the file to
the rs232 port!
It even sound neat, makes a zipping noise as the scanner reads
all that data at 9600 baud. Zip ... all that tedious programing
