Icom commercial radios can be programmed by using an OPC-478 cable used for many amateur radios by creating an adapter out of a head phone extension cable and a honey5 crimped connector. The Icom equivalent is the OPC-592 The radios that this will work for include: IC-F211 IC-F221 IC-F310 IC-F320 (great for 2m) IC-F420 (great for 70cm) All can be found for under $50 in many cases and are all robust radios great for just a few repeaters, a link radio, APRS or packet gateway. Software is mostly DOS based and will recognize a USB to serial adapter or you can make the same adapter as above for universal cables used for Chinese import radios like a Baofeng RJ-45 Pin 2 goes to "ring" on 3.5mm. RJ-45 Pin 7 goes to "ground" on 3.5mm. Make sure you do not short any other pins in the RJ-45 or it will not work. This adapter I created is the same thing as an Icom OPC-592. software: http://mw0gkx.co.uk/radprog/icomdosclonesw.htm
