• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.
  • Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Is there any way to determine whether an IC-F320S-6 is the 136-155 MHz model or the 146-174 MHz model from the serial number or from the FCC-ID?

Thanks!

Hi, If You Call Icom, Tech Support, At 1-800-253-1498, they can look that info up for you, just give them the entire model number including the -6 suffix, that identifies the split.

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately, things weren't quite that easy.

I called the number provided, and used option 2 for land-mobile radio technical support. I spoke with Fred.

Fred had never heard of an IC-F320S-6. Fred said that his computer agreed that no such model exists.

Fred also let me know that there is no method by which the band split may be determined from the serial number or from the FCC-ID.

Fred let me know the following:
- An IC-F320S-01 is a 136-155 MHz model
- An IC-F320S-02 is a 146-174 MHz model
- An IC-F320S-11 is a 136-155 MHz model

I provided Fred with the serial number from my IC-F320S-6. From that serial number, Fred was able to look up the specific details of this radio.

Fred let me know that the sticker on the bottom of my radio is actually supposed to read IC-F320S-02, and is thus a 146-174 MHz model.

Shues,

Just wanted to let you know this information finally got me to be able to program these mislabeled 320-6's with the CSF300S software!

Thanks!
