• 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:

According to the websight, there is a programming cable and software available. This seems odd for a radio with services that use fixed frequencies. The 7.4 volt battery also suggests power output above the MURS limit, although no output is specified. The manual http://www.powerwerx.com/download/TERA_TR-505_User_Manual.pdf states two power levels. 5 watts is available for VHF according to the specs.

All the documentation (and I just skimmed it, didn't read every page in detail) up on the FCC database only mentions the UHF functionality of the radio. Take a look at the user manual for example: it's different than the one on the powerwerx site. The one the FCC has up only mentions the GMRS capabilities.

FCC ID shows 1.1 watts on UHF.

No thanks, I'll pass.

Really sad to see the FCC is obviously not paying attention to what is getting passed through their system.

It only has the first 3 repeater pairs programmed into it. (550/575/600) The Tera users manual also states it'll run 400-470 MHz as well as 136-174 MHz.

Take note, Powerwerx has pulled the radio off their page.

Amazing how many of these companies will happily ignore the rules to make a few bucks. Integrity is gone, greed and profit has replaced it.

I noticed this last year when the grants were issued.
There are two FCC IDs
2ACK8TR505 which is GMRS only and
2ACK8TR505D which is GMRS/MURS and apparently was never produced or sold.
Likely..."Forgot" to include all the specs...to clear the fcc....then sell them as dual service.
