• 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.

Confused. I had an 08 TB that had 4 antennas on the roof. They were all drilled through. What are you thinking of doing if not putting them on the roof?

Are you using an NMO mount or a magnet mount? I ended up coming up with a somewhat "permanent" solution using a magnet mount (I'm a college student and my '99 Blazer is in my dad's name - since he's squeamish about drilling a hole, that was out of the question). I pulled off some of the weather stripping that surrounds the passenger side door frame, cut out a little bit of the metal (enough for the coaxial cable to fit through), then put the weather stripping back in place and sealed it all up with silicone. Keeps everything sealed (no water leakage at all), no wind noise, no pinched coaxial cable, and the antenna can still come off without leaving a hole when I'm done with the Blazer. Naturally, my next vehicle is getting drilled...

Mag mount w/ diamond dualband(50+ inchs) doors and rear gate have no way in for the coax don't need to drill for thr coax if I can get in w/out drilling it Before the TB I had Drango and it was the same and I went underer the seal ect and had nothing but grief to the power of 10 I've installed radios since 1970 and never had this kind of problem the more I think about it Maybe I'll just drill-- Thanks for your time
