• 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.

Coax stripper?

Has anyone ever come across a two or three cut coax stripper that they like? Seems like most are geared up for TV sizes only, and the few adjustable ones have blade cartridges that are like $40 or something, which is ridiculous. I've looked for years for something that can have width/depth adjustment on two or three blades and not cost a fortune to put new blades on. Doesn't seem to exist. I'm about ready to make one myself and sell the darn thing.

I don't know the model number, but Amphenol makes a stripper/crimper for their RFX line of connectors that works just fine for me.

For some reason they make it very hard to find their stuff. Is it one of the kind that flips around on your finger? I assume not, since you said it crimps too.
