• 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 have an astro spectra unit that i am going to set up when i move into my new house. I need to get a HHCH and power supply.
I was told to use a 35amp power supply for a base set up.
Does anyone have any photos or experience using an astro spectra with an HHCH as a base?

I ran a Hhch in my garage, for use on 2m ham , it would get hot! Only down size is the length of the mic cord . You can use a printer cable (DB25 cable) that is shielded to extend the mic cable if needed. I used a Astro 35 amp power supply with no issues. That's more then enough power.

I was using an astron S11A with the 45 watt unit, but after 25 mins it gets hot and trips from continuous receiving. I changed the fuse, but it still trips. I'm looking into a 35 amp power supply, but their pretty pricey

Look into a HPN4001 motorola switching power supply. I run one of those on my XTL5000. Also on RX they shouldn't draw much power.
