• 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.

Are you saying MMDVM is intentionally stripping them off? If so, it would seem one could modify it and rebuild. MMDVM is open source.
Careful with that one. MMDVM is hosted under the GPL but they also have a statement in there about not for commercial use so it would appear they are really aiming at the core of amateur radio (and trying to avoid some legal issues).

No legal issues using encryption on ham bands where I live. This altruistic belief that ham radio has to be open to all is annoying.

Someone brought this up about 6 months ago and after some discussion said he got 2 mobiles working back to back.
I did a proof of concept using 2 MD612s about a foot apart with a dummy load on one and an antenna on the 2nd about 10' away.

Real world performance will depend on frequency spacing / IM calcs / antenna and maybe radio spacing.
