• 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.

Disappointed...

...in the fact that, well I probably didn't read enough about some commercial radios, before I bought them. I bought a GMRS liscence, and have been searching on the internet for ways to program these radios myself, but often I find out that the device is unavailable, services aren't offered, or it's a big no-no to advertise it here. Free programming was offered for the winning bidder on E-Bay, and I opted for the first few channels on the GMRS spectrum, no repeaters. I have the radio, and purchased an antenna to be cut for those frequencies, but I can't make the changes myself, if I decide to do so. I will receive a few more later, but I still won't be able to program them when they get here. One of which could have been programmed before it left the seller. Would have been nice, had I figured it out for myself, before I paid for it. No one to lame but myself.

Standard GX1510

what kind of radio you having programming issues with?
That is the radio model that I have programmed, and would like to then add repeater pairs in the GMRS service, eventually. I have also ordered a Uniden SMU 300K.

What is the original make and model of radio? Or is the SMU-300K what you have? (I was left with the impression you have some model you haven't disclosed, and the Uniden as an additional piece.)

What I Have...

...Is a Standard GX 1510 mobile radio. It is programmed for:

1) 462.5625

2) 462.5875

3) 462.6125

4) 462.6375

5) 462.6625

The radio was programmed with those frequencies in a rush as part of a free service provided by the seller on Ebay, which was a requirement to purchasing the radio, or it would have come with only the test frequencies. The purpose for having the radio was to use it for GMRS, and to eventually have it programmed with repeater pairs.

I want to do the same with the Uniden SMU 300k. I will go to the post office this morning to see if it is one of the two packages waiting to be picked up.

There will be others to play with. I have a Relm lmv2458b on the way, and a Ritrom RLM 150.

Um, thanks?

and the first 5 freqs you have there are limited to 5 watts
I realize now where the radio is programmed. I plan on getting that fixed.

The Uniden has come in. I believe it is programmed on two channels for 462.650. Anyway, the Standard no longer seems to put out a signal. Maybe the finals are gone, no smoke. Maybe it has already forgotten what it was programmed for?

Update

The Standard GX1510 seems to work okay on a larger (home brew) power supply, big enough to run any radio at least 100w. Weak ps used earlier. I have no power meter here to measure watts out, so I presume the radio is running more than 5w on FRS, which will definitely need to be changed.

The Uniden SMX 300k works well on same home brew power supply on 462.650, simplex. Again, two channels programmed as test frequencies.
