• 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.

Hey ya'll.. Yeah, I LOVE my home shack in my bedroom.. I never leave my bedroom. In the future, I plan to be getting a decent apartment. Of course, I'm gonna be implementing my scanners. My girlfriend is cool with this, and she said as long as I let her have her Nascar, I could have my scanners. Fair trade. :D

I was thinking something along the lines of setting up in the living room area. We will have a small computer desk, so hopefully, I'll be able to claim a small part of it for my scanners. I don't expect to have much. Probably a weather alert radio, Trunking base, and my Trunking handheld. Something basic, simple, yet that will provide lots of action.

Probably going to be living close to the town, which runs a trunked system, so the stock telescoping antenna / duckie will suffice, but I wouldn't mind having a little extra kick, in terms of a better antenna. Thought about taking a peice of coax and stripping the shield off and pinning it up in a corner, or taking a magnet mt scanner antenna and sticking it on top of a file cabinet or something.

Any apartment scannists around that could help me out a little bit and offer advice and tips? Anything will greatly be appreciated..
