• 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 have a nx5300k3 with all my frequencies in it. I got a new to me nx5300k6. All the programmed frequencies in the k3 will work in the k6. I have all my buttons on the k3 programmed the way I like. Both radios have the same firmware. Can I read the k3 radio and then write to the k6 radio copying all frequencies and optional feastures. Or do I have to start over from scratch?

Thanks for any help

If you have the K3 set up in Channel Table you should just be able to cut and past into the K6. The K6 of course will need to be in the Channel Table configuration as well as the System type needs to be the same, you cant cut and past from a NXDN conventional zone into a analog conventional zone. I have tested it and it works for me, even with out of band freqs, you will just get the RX freq is out of range warning. Of course you will need to have two instances of D1N running at the same time so they are side by side. You can also read the K3 and change it to a K6 to keep your keys layout, BUT you will need to save a copy of the K3 that you can cut the freqs from.
