The ADMS-11 software provides editing capabilities for the FT3DR/DE memory channel frequencies, channel information, and alpha tags, using a personal computer. Also, the transceiver parameters and the setup menu items may be edited and configured.
The radio is shipped with a micro-USB cable. This cable is NOT for programming the radio. It is only for performing firmware updates. The cloning cable is about $25.
An alternative method for programming the radio is with a microSD card. A microSD card is not included with the radio but can be purchased separately.
900 memory channels.
To import the RepeaterBook export into the ADMS software, use the File » Import option from the menu bar at the top.
When the export is conducted from RepeaterBook.com, the file may automatically open in Excel. If any column contains values like “#NAME?” then you cannot use Excel to manipulate the data. Usually, the culprit is Column F, where the offset symbols with “+” and “-” are used. Excel attempts to convert that to a formula and fails. Saving the file will corrupt that column and cause it to fail on import.
Do not edit and save the file in Excel.
When the file opens in Excel, close it without saving it. Import it directly from the Downloads folder. Editing must be done in a program such as Notepad.
