• 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.

Harris XG100P/BKR9000


Mar 30, 2014
I would be surprised if there is anything in common with the PRC-152 and XG-100P. I think they are from two different design groups and made on two different assembly lines.

kb4cvn stated the following in another thread.

Basically the Unity XG-100p is a Harris AN/PRC-152 Falcon-III radio with the following changes:

  • Battery moved from bottom to back (allowing the use of the P7100 style batteries)
  • Display changed from a IR version for NVG use, to a visible light model.
  • NSA Approved Type-1 Cryptographic module replaced with a NSA Approved Type-3 module, supporting DES and AES encryption formats.
  • Main circuit board altered, removing the 30-88 MHz band, and adding in the 700/800 MHz band.

Harris (Rochester) essentially took an off-the-shelf Green Radio, tweaked it a bit, and repackaged it for public safety use. Radios after that were designed by Lynchburg, who have better technical expertise in public safety radios
