• 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.

Mobile District intends to negotiate on a sole source basis with Southern Linc, 555 Glenridge Connector, Suite 500, Atlanta, GA 30342. This is to provide equipment, radio/cell phones, with airtime service for the Mobile District Corps of Engineers. The service area consists of remote locations, such as Parks, and Locks and Dams, throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee. The proposed contract action is for supplies and services for which the Government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under authority of FAR 6.302. The Southern Company (Alabama Power) has existing Towers throughout the Southeast. An in-house study indicated that the use of these radios with Southern Linc Towers provided better coverage t o the remote locations for Park Rangers and Locks and Dams and the U. S. Corps of Engineers Field Office locations in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida and Tennessee. To disrupt service with Southern Company would impact the Corps by losing service i n remote locations, and investments in equipment and installations costs for car kits, base stations, repeaters and compatibility problems with current equipment, which would need to be replaced if another vendor were selected.
