• 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.

Anyone using the SpectrumForce Desk Mount?

I'm thinking about getting a couple of these (4 radio model) versus building something or buying some sort of shelf as I build my scanner/radio shack desk. Anyone using them or have a photo they could show of how they have them set up? I'm building a new desk and I'd like a clean look. However if these look sharp it would save me time versus building something.

I guess it's a matter of how well you like that particular 'rack' or mounting system. I think if I were going to go to the trouble to build a custom 'desk', I'd think up a scheme to do it so that everything 'matched', you know? It isn't easy being as cheap as I am...

I don't have any pictures, but a few years ago I needed a way to mount multiple radios and used a couple of heavy duty pieces of peg board for the sides. The peg board was white so I painted it black. When I cut the pieces I made sure the holes matched side to side and mounted those to solid piece of pine for a top. It actually looked pretty good all painted and the holes just happened to line up to the equipment quite well. Just an inexpensive solution for me with parts I had!
