• 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.

Via the ARRL Newsletter yesterday.

"BAOFENG Rebrands to Pofung: Chinese radio manufacturer BAOFENG is rebranding its products under the "Pofung" label in international markets. The company said BAOFENG -- a literal Pinyin translation of the company's Chinese character name -- "may be difficult for a hobbyist across the ocean to pronounce." The company said the new name, Pofung, is easier to pronounce and more customer-friendly, while maintaining the brand's phonetic symbolism. Products for the domestic market in China will retain their current brand name and identity, and the company's web domain, www.baofengradio.com, will remain unchanged. -- Thanks to Amateur Radio Newsline, Baofeng"

Their Web site has a Pofung tab in the menu at the top of the page.

I guess I have a different attitude than a lot of people. This name change is more trouble than it's worth in my opinion. @#$!... I just figured out how to pronounce the @#$ name and now they changed it. Oh well...

Baofeng radio is worth the money anyway. You can pay few bucks and then expect an Wouxun radio.
I have used Baofeng all the way that they are pretty good.
