• 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.

Can someone identify this mod ?

Can someone identify this. The radio is a 3061t I got used, radio seems to work ok, but the included antenna. Looks like a setup to run a external vhf antenna.















1-Can I remove it?







2-Is there a screw on adapter to use a bnc type antenna

Looks like it's the wrong antenna. That doesn't look like an adapter on the radio, it looks similar to my Icom radios.
What does the underside of the antenna look like? Any marking on it?

You can get BNC adapters, however they are intended for bench testing and not recommended for daily use. the extend the length of the antenna mount and put strain on the connector/solder joint. You'd be doing your radio a favor by just getting the correct antenna rather than using an adapter.
