• 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:

I am most likely buying a 2002 X-Terra this week, and I was wondering, do any of you know of a good way to mount scanners, HAM and CB radios in an X-Terra? Wondering if anyone has any personal experience or knows any good ways to mount radios.

I am currently just running a Uniden 436, but plan on buying a couple more as I save up for more units as well as probably a HAM and CB for storm chasing. I am also planning on running a Baofeng for the conventional systems in my area as well so will need to be able to mount multiple radio. Looking for an option to mount that can easily be install/removed and with no drilling to dash etc,

Couldn't find anything, but wondering if there's any options out there that utilize the pocket clip or piece that clips on to the picket clip to hold my 436 and other handheld with the pocket clip

Yeah, didn't see anything. Found the mount to the dash, just nothing for a CB, HAM or Uniden scanner.


Yeah I don't think they'll have radio specific mounts but if you have detachable heads or just wanna hang mics they might work. Also look into ram mounts.

I used a small pocket clip thing from pro clips to hang my handheld scanner and cb mic (with built-in radio controls and speaker, can't remember the cobra mode name) by mounting a mic clip to the pocket clip.

I've used ProClip for phones and also had good luck with Panavise In-Dash mounts. Still using the same Panavise mount I had for cradle / 3W amplifier on my AMPS Motorola MicroTAC Elite in my 1999 Jeep Cherokee. Now it's got a ProClip iPhone mount on it. Similar to the vehicle side of the ProClip units, they are specific to each vehicle and usually mount to the factory radio mounting screws.
Panavise, In Dash, Nissan Frontier 02~04, Xterra 02~04

You can usually find (or make) a separate mount compatible with your portable device.
Here are few good examples:
