• 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:

The 2013 Accord has a square-shaped cup holder (photos below). Are there any cup holder mounts that will fit this and have a solid snug install with no wobble or flimsiness? All the ones online are round. This would be to mount a mobile scanner like a Uniden BCT15X or BCD996P2 which have some weight to 'em.

If you're handy with a welder, and like diy, I'd recommend going to a junkyard or steel scrap yard and see if you can find either I-Beam that'll fit or even part of a car frame. Hitch assemblies would be pretty good and probably near the right size to fit in there snug. Depending where you go, they might not even charge you

Those scanners are relatively large and heavy. I would think that any solution that puts them "in the air" will be difficult to engineer without affecting the vehicle interior. Isn't there some location where you could fabricate a more stable mount? Is there an adequate cubby space forward of the shifter?

I must have missed the part about the OP wanting to put a mobile radio in the cup holder. What about removing the cup holder from the console and building your own mount and an escutcheon out of ABS plastic?

Pull that plastic cover off the transmission hump and see what kind of space you're working with down there. I don't see any realistic way of fitting something the size of a 15X or 996PS in there without some cutting and/or custom fab. cheif21 is on the right track - there's likely a void behind the coin tray area just in front of the shifter.

Juice boxes. It's a millennial thing.
Come on now, be nice to millennials - they will be serving you your juice box in a few years... :p

Well everything it’s designed to hold is round (cups and bottles). So I’m sure a round cup-holder mount would work just as well as if it was round.
