• 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 did my application two nights ago, around 11pm (PST) and submitted it.
I paid the $85 the next morning (Sunday), no big deal.


I know it takes sometime for them to process it, especially since its a federal agency.
but two things:

1) I just logged on to see what was up, and went into the ULS and under my licenses it shows nothing (i expected that), but under my applications it has nothing listed anymore. Is that good or bad?

2) What should i expect to receive from the FCC? An email, or an actual letter? And the usual turnaround time on that would be what, about a week?

Thanks guys!

Anything processed on a Sunday won't be seen until any licenses are processed from close of business Friday are cleared, then Saturday, then Sunday. It could be a few hours to a few days depending upon volume of activity. Everything ids done in order. I have seen some licenses entered within a few minutes of each other get processed a few day later. Don't sweat it. Everything takes time.

Have no fear!

I applied on a Tuesday and my license was in my mailbox that Saturday. It really is that quick! Dont worry yourself to death. It will be at your door before you know it!
