• 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'm new here, and new to radio operation, but I seem to have reached a dead end to my research on the Bearcom BC10.

I picked one of these up recently, and was wondering how I could program it or use it. Maybe someone knows of a users manual I could download?

I was able to determine what frequencies the 4 channels transmit on, but I'm not able to get it to receive. The light blinks to indicate it's receiving, but no audio comes out unless I put it on monitor. I have a Motorola CLS 1110 that I'd like to use with it. The Motorola has tons of documentation on it, but the Bearcom, not so much.

What I do know is the radio is a re-branded Tekk XU-100. But the display is a lot different, and it doesn't seem like I'm able to program it from the radio. There is a program button that when I hold it down and turn on the radio it says "P" on the display, but doesn't let me do anything.

Thanks for any help.

i do not know about that radio but the problem sounds like the privacy code doesnt match. on those motorola models which are used at our work.. a pl code of say 100 on motorola equals dcts tone of 506 on my Baofeng chinese radio.(just an example) so try to turn the privacy code to zero on the motorola and see if it works. once u get audio then u can put the privacy codes on if u wish. you can google the charts.

let us know
