• 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.

CPS froze while programming

I just about finished reprogramming my XTS2500 went to write to the radio. When I did, it started off like normal, but never progressed past the "verifying if device can accept codeplug" part. The radio says program mode on it, and the CPS is not responding and it's been about 40 minutes. An y ideas or did I just wreck my radio?

If you saved the codeplug before trying to write or if you have a previous one you should be able to write it again. CPS sucks sometimes.

Well, over an hour later, the software finally decided to cooperate and the radio programmed without a problem.

This is usually a pc caused thing - such as an anti-virus program starting up
as you are programming a radio or a spyware scan or other various scheduled
scans. I deleted all of my scheduled scans and now do the updates and scans
manually in order to bypass this happening.

My saving grace- The "save" button!!!!! I cannot recomend that enough! Hit save every time you do any changes.
