• 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.

I would love to know or see how someone has successfully mounted their BC-RH96 Remote Head AND also the supporting 396/996.

What specifically do you mean by "how"?

I've seen three. One had the head screwed to the underside of the dash and the main unit under the passenger seat. One had the head screwed to the centre console and the main unit under the back seat. The other had the head mounted into a big square hole cut into the centre console and the main unit in the trunk.

I did a little bit of modification to my mounting bracket... I drilled a hole and mounted it to an L shaped Bracket that in mounted to the inside of my center console. All of the cords to the scanner were run underneath my center console to the center cabinet that my ipod cable for my head unit is also ran to. I ran a 3 port outlet DC power adapter underneath my dash and connected both the power sources for the scanner and also the power source for my scanner... Sorry about the picture quality, i had to use my cell phone because my digital camera download cable is at my house 100 miles away...
