TH-8600 Programming Software

To set the language of the TH-8600 Programming Software to English, check the screenshot above.

    I downloaded the zip file but the executable doesn’t do anything but blink briefly on the screen. No error messages, no indication of what’s going on. Does the radio need to be plugged in before running TH-8600.exe?

    I picked this unit up at the Atlanta hamfest and the vendor was kind enough to supply a programming cable. From what it looks like it’s a serial to USB identifying as “Prolific”

    I also purchased a TH-8600 transceiver from the Atlanta Hamfest. I downloaded the programming software directly from the TYT website. After first unzipping the installer, double-clicking it opens the file and it installs leaving a desktop icon on my Win10 laptop. After changing the language from Chinese to English, its fairly easy to use. Once open, you can enter the channels you want, and all the details, then simply connect the radio to your computer using the supplied USB cable. Power the radio on. In the program, you just need to select one of the available ports on your computer you want to use, and just accept the default baud rate. No other settings are required. Once ready to program the radio, click on the write button “>>” and you will see on the radio display the words CLONE and the channels incrementing. Once done the radio resets, and if you click on the V/M button to select memory, you should see all the channels you programmed. Pretty slick for the price.

    1. As I recall, it matters where the software is located on the computer. I’ve sold my TH-8600, but I had a similar issue until I put the software in a different folder. Wish I could remember exactly the process. Maybe someone can add to this story line.

    The software needs to be installed with administrator permission, If you do that then the software will installed on your computer, otherwise ,you will see just a short screen and then nothing.
