• 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.

So I can't believe I am having a brain fart tonight but maybe someone here can help a guy out. Tuner will not read my astro spectra. I turn the rib on first, than radio and read it. I have ran tuner in the past (about 9 months ago) and never had an issue. Am I doing something wrong

Microsoft Windows likes to steal the com port. Restart windows from a cold start, Then run Tuner. Check the Tuner's settings.

If you have the correct programming cable, the radio powers the RIB.

"not reading"? Does the radio's control head display go to CSQ 1when Tuner starts trying to read?

Switched to comport 1 on the computer and it worked. I guess even tho tuner allows ports 1,2 & 3, 2 & 3 were a no go. It works was able to tune the radio. Thanks to all who participated.:thumbup:
