• 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.

G4 vs. G5

Other than the additional band, is there any other difference between the G4 and G5?

I have other radios that can handle anything other than simulcast systems, so I don't see the advantage for me of paying for the additional band on the G5. But, I just want to be sure there are no other differences between the G4 and G5. Simulcast is big in my area and Unication appears to be the best solution today. The Unidens and Whistlers are junk for my location.

Thanks.

OK. Thank you for the replies, but none of the above apply. I really just want to know if there is a difference between the G4 and G5 other than dual band on the G5. All simulcast systems here are in the 700-800 MHZ range.

Thanks.

No. The G5 adds either vhf or uhf. Otherwise it's a G4.
