Icom CSV memory channel files for Hawaii

Icom offers a memory control program to help you configure your Icom handie talkie radios. A sample starter file of pre-programmed memory channels for the VHF repeaters in the State of Hawaii is available.


The repeater listing on www.hawaiirepeaters.net was used as of August 6, 2011 to program in the memory channels. Also used were the VHF simplex plans for Kauai, Oahu and Maui counties.

The memories were programmed using the Icom CS-V80 Cloning Software for the Icom IC-V80A radios. It provides quick and easy programming of memory channel, names, etc. You will need an Icom OPC-478UC equivalent programming cable to connect your Windows PC to the Icom radio. The OPC-478UC is USB version of the cable.

You can download the starter CSV formatted files.

If you are knowledgeable about using a text editor and the format of CSV files, you can edit the CSV file to your liking.
