• 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.

Is the Harris programming software and programming cable available for purchase online somewhere for end users?

I have a G-15 I need to program for myself.

Thanks

Great link. When I bought a Unity, XG-100P radio, I had to sign many legal documents about not sending software or hardware to China. Then a dedicated computer for RPM, Radio Program Manager software was needed. It was more involved than Motorola's procedure to be legal, and took about twice as long....several weeks.

I hope I do not have hard drive failure anytime soon, as that procedure is a mess to recover from.

By a 'G-15' I assume you mean XG-15? You will need RPM to program the radio which runs somewhere around $800-$1000 (yes, you read that right) and cables are quite pricey as well...and somewhat difficult to find.

As mentioned above RPM is licensed for the PC that it's installed on, so once you install it you can't move it to another machine without getting another license file from Harris... and I'm sure that would be a fun job.

Harris is probably under the belief that the military won't be trying to give away or share copies of their software outside the military..

The license doesn't need to be PC locked. You can lock it to an AAC dongle (USB key device) instead. They cost $400/ea though
