• 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 been using the EM Wave EM-M11003 mobile antenna with NMO mount exclusively for scanning ALL BANDS, including low VHF, high VHF, UHF, 700-800 MHz connected to a Uniden BCD996T for the past 5 years or so. Okay, it's cut to transmit on the above 700-800 MHz, but it receives ALL bands extremely well, at least it does for me in the metro Chicago area. I primarily listen to Starcom21, but also monitor several VHF and UHF systems. I programmed in a few low VHF channels, and it does as well as any other mobile antenna I've used in the past. EM Wave sells their products through distributors and dealers, but I believe Wiscomm can order it, as I don't see it on his normal in-stock inventory. I could be wrong, so please check with Craig or one of the other associates.

I've had it connected in two different vehicles, both using permanent NMO mounts, and it hasn't failed me yet. Also, it is rugged, and does just fine as I take my vehicle through commercial car washes on a regular basis.

any piece of metal will receive radio waves, it is just a question of how well.
i always say try it and see.
what works great for some, might be so-so for another.
an old CB 108" whip worked great for low and high VHF, and got nothing on 800, even from the next town.
last year the stock antenna on a pro 164 received CB CH 6 (superbowl) from Alabama.
yes exceptional power from there.
