    I noticed Brick-O-Lore has a screen shot of the UV-5R software that shows DTMF programming options. Sounds encouraging.

    Yes, both the software and manual suggests DTMF. Link to the screenshots for those that are interested:

    Also,

    If you have an programming cable for a Wouxun UVD1P, can you confirm if it will also work with the UV-5R?

    I'll swing buy Universal radio and pick one up if it does.

    Thanks.

    It DOES have DTMF, and the Wouxun programming cable works.

    Are you able to program pl and offset manually into a memory channel without using the software?

    Seems to be an issue with some units.

    Did you get this figured out? I may have seen another post saying that you had a bad unit.

    Thanks to Ed at www.importcommunications.com, here are some instructions for programming the UV-5R:

    I've seen those instructions. I can only program via software.

    I have a replacement coming
