• 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.

so I was surfing amazon and found this. https://www.amazon.com/Multi-channels-Wrist-operated-Wristwatch-Watch-Auto-display-Auto/dp/B002PHZX8K/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_t I know its a long way from what I am trying to do and what I have now. which is a beofeng uv5r. I use the uv5r to scan my work so I can hear my calls. They do not have enough radios to go around. my work is using 154.6000 I pick them up on several channel's near this one. anyway I was wondering if these little cool watches would pick up that frequency

Nope this is UHF only, not VHF

Apparently this is not just an FRS, but a GMRS with Repeater
based on the manual

And depending on your Country settings has the other Channels
China, Taiwan, Europe, Korea, Australia,

I am very surprised at the complexity in this seemingly simple little "radio." What I find most disturbing however is that there's no mention at all of a requirement for a GMRS license for GMRS operations, i.e., use of local repeaters.

I looked at the web page.. If you scroll on down, you'll find that they're pretty much junk, according to the Q&A and the reviews. License? It probably doesn't matter. They won't last long enough to be of much benefit.
