• 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:

This is a great thread! I wish I had my original license, but I should be able to recreate it with the generous posts of a few of you who still have yours. Thank you!

Wow this thread is over 11 years old and it's been revived. There was another thread, what was your call sign also. I would love to have my license that was under my dad's name when I was 12 in 1965... KOG0554, Lafayette he 90 with a collinear 3 Hi- Gain ground plane right next to my VHF High tunable monitor for police and fire.

I've been trying to remember mine from around 1976 It started with KBBG but I'm not sure the last part. 1088 seems familiar.

I have MOST of mine. It was out in the garage and pinned to a cork board from when I used to have a table set up out there hooked to an antenna. Then I gave it up for a long time. The cork board fell off the wall got behind some boxes...and when I finally found it....moisture had gotten to it and about 35% of the middle top is gone. Still have it though....

My late brother's call sign was KBSG-0670. I never took time to investigate getting my own rig or ticket.

Once upon a time I had KQV6070. Some time around '65 - '67, maybe? Also held a C.A.P. mobile call under the national license during that period. Can't remember that one.

I believe 65 is around the right time. I got KQI in 1965 so KQV wasn't that far later than mine... unless it was a "recycled" call sign.

At that time there were no recycled call signs, they hadn't run out yet.
