    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

I want to keep from getting in trouble for illegal software.

How would one Legally acquire Motorola programming software for a discontinued model (the mcx 1000).

Is it possible to legally acquire one?

thanks!

Contact Motorola, fill out the license form, send it back. go through all the BS, then order the software at the inflated prices they charge. Haven't looked, but would expect it to be in the order of $200 to $300. Then you need a RIB and the radio programming cable. Both of these are available from other than Motorola. Again I haven't looked recently, but you should expect to pay about $150 for the RIB and about the same for the cable.
