ALWAYS download from the radio first, then modify the programming. That way you shouldn’t overwrite vital parameters. As far as copying to another radio, read the destination radio, open the new file in a separate window, then copy and paste to the destination radio.

I was using a portable and hooked up a ICOM 91E and a Powerwerx mobile with the intent of copying the info from the ICOM to the mobile.  The radios were on different COM ports and the ICOM differs from the mobile in that it is dynamically programmed. While downloading from the ICOM the Powerwerx kept beeping intermittently as though it was receiving information from the computer.
