• 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.

I purchased a motorola NAB6064B to replace a damaged antenna on my MT1000, but the old antenna is only damaged at the tip. I would like to know if it is possible to cut it down to work on my UHF Radius P110 that uses the same MX style base. It would look much better than the long flimsy antenna that is on it now. My question is can it be used on the P110, and to what length do I cut?

Those portable antennas for the low band VHF range have to be cut or 'tuned' to the proper frequency.

Antenna tuning.

I am aware that it has to be tuned for the freq. I was curious if anyone has info on what length to cut the antenna for the uhf band. The low band antenna coil is larger in diameter, therefore, I think there will be a variance in the length for the uhf band. The specific freq I am interested in is 453-469. Any information would be appreciated.

You need the UHF antenna which is a 6 inch whip style molded.

NAE6350A is the correct Motorola part number.

It may be possible, however the antenna was not made for that freq range. You would be just guessing as to the length. It probably would not radiate very well either. You can get a stubby antenna for that radio though.
