• 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.

Does anybody know if anyone has ever put forth the effort to create an encryption keyloading software package that works on any P25 compliant radio and isn't an expensive, rigorously controlled product from a major radio company?

It seems to me that it's a relatively simple concept. Certainly there's no NEED to do this with dedicated
hardware, all it takes is the right app to generate the data and the appropriate cable to send it to the radio.

The Harris key manager software is just that...software. But software that has installation and operation restrictions on it. Which I think is actually kind of silly, but it is what it is.

I can't believe that after all these years nobody has come up with a software equivalent of the good old T3011DX keyloader or some other newer KVL like a 4000.

I'm also quite interested in a software solution. I would imagine that commercially this hasn't been done due to FIPS compliance being difficult to achieve. There was a thread on the now gone P25.ca where someone was investigating the data stream between the KVL and the target radio.

Sounds great! What do we need to do it? I can think of a aurduino or raspberry pi based unit...... super helpful to be able to be loaded from another loader.. TT

It’s just not going to happen.... don’t ask me why... the idea is good but it will nwvet happen.

If we play with the big boy radios, we are going to have to get out the checkbook....
