• 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.

The biggest problem is that most wireless microphone users have no idea what frequency they are using.

And companies are still selling product that will be illegal in 6 months.

Wireless Mics

I guess that this will mean that churches will have to move their wireless mics to this band? We have bought new wireless mics in the 700MHz band but still have 2 500MHz band mics left.

It is the 700 MHz band that you have to stop using.
Yes, I know those are the newest microphones.

This is not about the $$

It is the new Public Safety band.

My guess is it was on oversight.

This is not new. The FCC warned wireless mic manufacturers about this a couple years back. Panasonic, for example, has already switched their wirless mics from 600/700MHz (that they were using for in-car video) to 900 MHz. As a matter of fact, I think we still we may still have one of those units.
