• 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.

Why do mostly all VHF radios range start at 136 Mhz.... isn't that for airband ONLY? I'e never heard of FM in this range. Thanks.

If you're going to quote rules you should at least post links to current rules and documents on government web sites.

Electronic Code of Federal Regulations:

Electronic Code of Federal Regulations:
US244 The band 136–137 MHz is allocated to the non-Federal aeronautical mobile (R) service on a primary basis, and is subject to pertinent international treaties and agreements. The frequencies 136, 136.025, 136.05, 136.075, 136.1, 136.125, 136.15, 136.175, 136.2, 136.225, 136.25, 136.275, 136.3, 136.325, 136.35, 136.375, 136.4, 136.425, 136.45, and 136.475 MHz are available on a shared basis to the Federal Aviation Administration for air traffic control purposes, such as automatic weather observation stations (AWOS), automatic terminal information services (ATIS), flight information services-broadcast (FIS-B), and airport control tower communications.

Who quoted any rules? The op's question was in regards to aircraft spectrum.

Dusting off the cob-webs...

There are wireless microphones that are FM txers up in the 171mhz area, maybe higher. Big cities w/ news rooms and remotes (the news van) has wireless mics in the 400mhz range. I heard someone practicing in ATL (from Lithia Springs, GA). That mic was at 450.0725, I think. Shoulda wrote that one down. May have been NBC 11, or AccuWeather.com.

450/455 would be an IFB not usually a wireless Mic.

And we are way way off-topic as to what the OP originally asked

Not really, The original OP asked about aircraft freq range so that's what I gave him,and someone posted something about quoting rules(and don't know where that came from) then someone ELSE asked about wireless mic so that's what I gave him SO....how am I off topic?? :evil:
Btw bill, I don't see a administrator tag for you?

FEMA has big network in the 136-144 band. Also a lot of navy FM shore stuff there. It's either feast or famine depending on where u live. It's an interesting section of spectrum to listen to.

Okay, guys - let's settle down and stay on topic here. Further off-topic discussion will result in moderation activities...
