• 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.

Does anyone know how to decipher this model number: 242-5172-810 YK5 It is 700/800 mhz and appears to maybe be the original 5100 series. I am trying to find out if it is digital, p25 and will work once all the rebanding is done in Indiana on the Hoosier Safe-T system. Any info will help. Thanks!

Head to radioinfoboard.com, and post this in the Model Decode thread in the EFJohnson thread. YOu will receive a response from the king of EFJ, "Intrinsically Safe."

Hey do you guys know if the EFJohnson/Otto speaker mics made for the 5100 work with the Motorola XTS and MTS series? The connector looks identical and Motorola radios with the EF speaker mics... Just need a confirmation on that.

yes they will work just fine .
They do! I actually bought one the day I posted in this thread. I love it, although it does not have a 2.5mm jack because its the H20 immersion version, but oh well. And I realize my last post makes absolutely no sense, at least the end part of it...sorry.

Both Models work fine on the Motorola Radios . I've used them on both the EF Johnson 5100's and Motorola XTS Series .

I have 4 of them. Got em at a good price. Like them better than the moto mike as you cant bump the ptt easy on them. These are the square OTTO looking ones. My money bet they are made by otto.
