• 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.

Yes, I updated the feature string on one of my XG-100P radios to include phase 2 back in March of this year. You have to read the current feature string off the radio send it to the dealer. They send it to Harris it cost me $250. The dealer will send you the new feature string for you to upload to your radio.

All XG100Ps are FPP. You just need to program a known password and set user UI privilege to full under Unity Portable/Mobile Options. Then, as long as scan is not engaged and you are in a conventional system you can hit the CH INFO button, then EDIT CHAN. Enter your password you entered in RPM, and you can edit channel parameters.

What dealer did you use? Most won't even play nice with Average Joe Citizen

I used Metrotalk Inc. The salesman I worked with was Frank Sampedro. I know what you say I live near Rochester, NY. a lot of the radios are made here in town. I couldn’t get the local dealer to even respond via email. But someone on the forums referred me to Metrotalk for my Phase 2 programming I have also purchased a program cable for another Harris radio I own through Metrotalk. 73s

Is there a way for me to see if this FPP feature has been enabled on my radio?

Again, this is not a ‘feature’ that has to be added by Harris. It’s an option you need to enable through RPM. As long as scan is not engaged and you are in a conventional system you can hit the CH INFO button, then EDIT CHAN. If EDIT CHAN does not appear on the selected channel, check the RPM options for that mission plan.
