• 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.

Hello,
I want to install a radio in my car and I'm not sure where the battery is located also what is the best location you have found to put your radio.

My 2000 LeSabre battery is located under the rear seat. I extended the wiring that came with my cb and connected it to the acessory fuse box located next to the battery. I then went under the carpet to the edge of the rear door and ran both the antenna coax and the power wiring under the door jams up to the front firewall ... the problem is where can you mount these radio's in these cars... I ended up placing mine under and attached to the ashtray. The problem with that is the tray won't fully close. Maybe you should buy a floor mount..I will the next time

I had a 2000 Buick LeSaber Custom Touring for a very short period of time. I had a professional install tech put a GRE PSR-600 under the dash attached to the ashtray. He used heavy-duty velcro which held the ashtray in place, until it got hot outside. Then the velcro melted loose and it was a battle keeping the ashtray closed. The radio worked fine, but it was a distraction having to change the velcro on a regular basis. The best stuff we finally used was the Scotch 3M product that is used to adhere my Illinois Tollway I-Pass to the windshield. Then, we got a new car, had the scanner, antenna, and wiring removed from the Buick and traded it in.
