• 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 don't know that much about Motos, so I thought I'd ask. I just saw an ebay ad for a Motorola EX600XLS, where the seller claimed it was FPP, and had dual band capability (VHF AND UHF). Is that even possible, let alone true? Is the EX600XLS actually FPP out of the box?

Okay thank you. As far as I know the only Moto FPPs are the XTS series with the proper flash, the JT1000 and the HT1550XLS is that correct?
The HT1550XLS is FPP with the special red battery, the XTS5000 and I think the XTS2500 too and I never seen an JT1000 have FPP capability.

All JT1000's are FPP, I have one sitting in front of me right now. They originally required a key (placed where the speaker mic goes) to be able to program but they can easily have their codeplugs hex-edited to not need the key at all.
