• 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.

Are CB radios active anywhere in NJ anymore?

I never hear anything on the CB bands where I live in north jersey and was wondering if CB radio is still active anywhere else in the state? My scanner doesn't even close call them much on the highways anymore. Do most truckers still have these radios in their rigs?

They are still commonly used by truckers. Try scanning the channels instead of hoping for Close Call hits.

truckers

most truckers wont talk to "little people". they are working.
also too many like cell phones, no one can interrupt for a radio check.
many that i knew only kept the squelch all the way up just to hear what was around them...other trucks.
i would just scan the band and try to find local action.

These days people are on cell phones if they want to visit. In bad weather you are more likely to find some activities.
