• 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 need help mounting my CB to my car.

Basically, I just don't want to drill holes in my car to install the bracket. Are there any other ways of securing the base?

1. Use existing screws, like under the glove compartment.

2. Use heavy duty double sided gorilla tape. May or may not work depending on size and weight of the radio.

3. Oh just drill the damn hole!!!

:cool:

If you want a really stable mount it amounts to drilling holes or using existing holes. Depending on your imagination, those 'holes' don't have to be in obvious places. Mounting brackets/plates/thingys can be of lots of shapes and positions.
For not so stable mounting, the options go through the roof. Glue the thing to something, use a cup-holder type mount, sand bag it, velcro, who knows what else?
A lot of it is convenience. Where can you put the thing that means you will loose some feature of your car that you don't necessarily need/want all that much? Is there a panel that could be replaced if you decide to remove the radio? One that doesn't cost an arm-n-leg?
Lots of options. You have to decide...
