• 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.

HT1000 battery contact failure

All,

The battery contacts on one of my HT1000 radios has failed... I remember reading in the not too distant past that the spring-loaded battery connection has a tendency to fail over time. I was hoping to replace this and cannot seem to find any of the sites in reference to the part number needed (it was $10 or so from China, i think), explanation on how to replace it, etc. The radio functioned fine prior to the pin failure (it was stored and forgotten with a battery attached and the battery burst/corroded) and the radio will still power up with power applied to the pins, but it sits too far into the case of the radio to make connection with the battery.

Any assistance would be helpful.

Try applying some kind of lubricant/nutbuster to the pins in question to free them up. I had this once [no battery corrosion, just a stuck pin] and it worked. Any radio in long time storage site w/o a battery connected for this exact reason. Good luck.
