There is also a newer version called Two Way Radio that works with all of
my Puxing models.  My version is 1.0.1.
Check out this page to see if this helps:
https://www.rtsystemsinc.com/Downloads_ep_40.html
I also found this:
https://www.rtsystemsinc.com/RPS-888-Programming-Software-Only-for-the-Puxing-PX-888_p_431.html
See if any of these helps.  Otherwise you are welcome to try a copy of the
free software that I am using.
