However, there are still many hundreds of thousands of these fantastic radios out in the marketplace and, with that in mind, we’ve created this guide.

Icom OPC-478UC Programming Cable
The Icom OPC-478U(c) cable is the USB version and replaces all previous OPC-478 model cables. There is no other cable available for Icom radios. This is the correct cable for the IC-F4000/F3000 radios.
Icom CS-F3000 Programming Software
Despite being called IC-F3000, this software is for all of the IC-F4000 UHF and IC-F3000 VHF series radios.
Software Support Unavailable
It should be noted. Unfortunately, we cannot offer technical support for self-programming two way radios. If you choose to program your own radio, we urge that you allow plenty of time to self-learn about your radio and the programming process – it’s not always straightforward.
