• 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.

Can a Harris MASTR III digital system be picked up on a Uniden BCD396T? If so are there any special programming proceedures or would it be like the Illinois State Police Starcom System?

The Harris MASTR III is a base station, not a protocol. It can operate in any of the following modes: P25 trunking, P25 conventional, conventional analog, and EDACS (with optional ProVoice).

What system are you trying to monitor?

SouthEastern Illinois Electric Coop in Eldorado, IL. They previously had a UHF with several repeaters, not sure what they have now, just know that they are using that particular repeater and the system is digital.

I found the following active licenses for them. All are UHF, all are licensed for plain old analog narrowband. I see no digital emission designators on any of their licenses. They currently don't have any pending applications, either for modifications to existing licenses, or for new licenses. You're going to have to either monitor the system to figure out what they're using, or find someone local who might know.
