    Programming software for Momentum HDM150

    I know the Harris/Tait deal might have thrown a wrench into this but does anyone have a contact for a dealer that I could still buy the Momentum programming software from. I have the UHF HDM150 which is a rebadged Hytera MD-782 but requires different "Harris" software to program it. Thanks.
