• 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.

the CP-200D will do analog as well as digital. In fact, it's base price is analog only. To program digital, you can either order them with the entitlement added or purchase the digital option later when all your radios are digital.

Keep in mind this is a BASIC digital radio: NO IP site connect, no capacity plus/connect plus or linked capacity plus, and only basic voice privacy. In other words it will work on single site repeaters (analog or digital) only. No interconnected TRBO, no trunking, no advanced encryption. Very BASIC radio and that's all it will ever be.

If you think you or your company might EVER WANT to expand their system, this is not the radio to buy. The XPR3000 series is a big step up and not much more in price.

How much is it to add the digital in the future
The analog to digital upgrade (HKVN4223) is currently $83.

FWIW, the CP200d only does certain types of digital and that may not be compatible with your existing system. CP200d spec sheet is here: http://www.motorolasolutions.com/we...ts/Staticfile/CPseries_Product_Spec_Sheet.pdf

You will need to know what kind of digital your system is using before you can even think about shopping for radios.

And, your FCC license has to have the proper emission types on it for this.
