• 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.

I'm in the process of buying a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500. I'm needing to place the following; Federal Signal PA300, Radio Shack 163 scanner, along with a 3-way cigarette pug that runs my light bar, and front window mount that will be placed for VFF uses. Has anyone made any consuls or have any ideas on placement? The large cup holder and comes down and eats up a lot of space.
Thanks.

Ok this may sound totally Ghetto..... but I have an 03. I am running ham gear in it currently. I places a piece of mdf under the lining of the center seat and bolted my yaseu 1802 to it then bracketed a radioshack cb to the top of it (same size). that still gave me clearance for the cup holder without having to create the console.I ran 90 degree out of the back of the radios to the antennas I ran the power cords under the flooring (mine is rubber) to the dash. Total cost : 3$ for the brackets. Ill try to get a pic to post later. Im not sure on the siren. But I think the scanner comes with a mounting bracket, it should work.

I used to have an '04 Ram 1500. If you eliminate the cupholders that gives you plenty of room to play. A small sacrifice I had to make, but it ended up looking great. Wish I had pictures of it. Just giving my two cents

a cig lighter for a lightbar?

WTF?
Could be a mini light bar.

I have a Whelen strobe light bar, and a Federal Signal halogen bar, both are mini bars and ran off of the cig lighter, before I direct wired them, same with a Code 3 420 halogen mini bar, I used to have.
