• 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.

No radio out there has a range indicator.

Some have an RSSI meter. It only shows you the approximate strength of the system's control channel. It doesn't really tell you if you are within range of the system or not - only that you can hear the system - not that the system can hear you.

I'm not familiar with a Harris product that has such a display however.

There is in a way. If the radio displays CC SCAN then you're out of range. If it displays the system & group name, you're in range.
If you want a more accurate display of signal received, there is a function - not available on all models - that will display the RSSI in dBm.

Most of the Harris-M/A-COM radios do if you program them with the FCC Menu. And yes it works in Conventional
and Trunked,

use the menu button to scroll to "FCC menu" then one of the arrows should activate it.

The RSSI indication was first done in the 500M, and then the Jaguar 700P, 7100 and so on. MR-K, Orion and earlier radios won't display the RSSI.
