• 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.

Hello, new on this forum. I have a couple of CDM-750 radios. I am looking for the programming software. Where should I look or where can I download it?

Call Motorola and get an account setup. Once that's done you'll be able to buy the software from them.

Motorola is the only legal place to get it. You can open an account on Motorola Online, and purchase that way. You might ask a local shop if they'll order you a copy. Not cheap.

There are bootleg copies out there, but we aren't supposed to talk about that….

The HVN9025 CPS is currently $299 from MOL. The programming cable is anywhere from $20 for a cheapy USB that may or may not work up to $210 for the AARKN4081C cable from /\/\.

I've said this many times before, but it bears repeating. If you own just one radio and you are only going to have it programmed a couple of times while you have it, it makes much more sense to have it done by a radio shop. Typical programmings costs are $30 to $50. The downside is that you have to prove to a shop that you are authorized to transmit on a frequency before they will program it as it is illegal to program a radio to transmit on frequencies that the holder is not authorized to use.

Alternatively, you may find someone else locally (maybe through a ham club) that can do this for you.

There is a steep learning curve to using this particular CPS properly.

I'm not saying don't do it; I am saying that there are some good reasons not to. Just giving you facts to make an informed decision.
