• 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.

This is a posting to provide a warning of an issue with the latest update for the eNIFOG for Android users. I have had this app working on the same phone for several years with no problems.

I recently updated eNIFOG app on my Android, and after the update was installed, I was unable to open the app. When I clicked on the icon, it kept loading and loading. This update is the January 2020 (hardcopy version 1.6.1A).

Emailed FEMA Tech Support, and after a couple of emails (relatively quickly) over the course of an afternoon, it was determined that I have an older Android and this app will not work on it.

Here is what they stated:
"From our MobApp Lead, it turns out that your version of Android is too old and will not support operations of the new eNIFOG and probably many other “modern” mobile apps. Not sure if you are having other MobApp issues.

The new eNIFOG is developed for only 2 versions-back in operations – we know it works on Androids are v7.x, v8.x, v9.x or 10.x now but not your v4.x."

I asked if I could access an older version, and here is their reply:
"On the app store, unfortunately it only allows us to distribute one single version, the latest version of the eNIFOG app. One of the reasons the Android app store forced us to move forward with later Android OS levels, is because they believe the older Android OS’s are security prone."

So, now I am no longer able to access this useful app from my phone.

Oh well, just wanted to give a heads up, so be wary when updating the FEMA apps.

No offense, but if you still have a phone running Android 4.x, then you have a lot more to worry about than the eNIFOG app no longer working. You are vulnerable to security risks running an OS that old...time to upgrade.

This is the correct answer.

If worse comes to worse, order some of the spiral-bound copies. It might not hurt to have some copies around for that special employee. You know: Justin Case.
