• 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:

Old FCC CB License?

Hello All:

Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but here goes. I had a CB license from the FCC back in the early 70's when they were required. I'd love to get a copy of that for nostalgia purposes, but can't find those anywhere on-line (including the FCC site).

Anybody know of a way to get a copy of these?

Thanks!

:) I saw that during my search. Funny thing is I think 1974 is the year I sent my $20 into the FCC for my CB license!

P.S. I e-mailed the FCC about my request. Not sure if I'll get a reply.

Since the FCC is unable to provide older Ham licenses, it's unlikely they could provide old CB licenses. If it's not in their database, they don't have the info.

That is, if a ham wants an older license's info, it's gone. When you update your license, the FCC does not retain archives of 'old' info, only 'current' info. And once a license is expired for sufficient time, it's purged.

Good luck on the license copy. I'd love to have a copy of mine!

Ahhhh the 70's how time flies. 20 bucks for a licence and gas for 30 - 40 cents per gal.

If you can find anyone who has an old CB license, get them to take a digital photo of it and email it to you. You should be able to get someone to photoshop your dad's callsign into it and get a printout. That is the only way I could think of doing it.
