• 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.

I have Motorola RSS (I guess) V. 03.02.01. What are the steps to installing it and what drive do I install it to.?Here's some info from the previous owner:
The software is a Motorola software version R03.02.01 Dated June of 96' It was running on VISTA Beta 3.0 OS...
I used it on my UHF radio, but the program does not appear to have a set limit as long as the radio accepts the frequencies. I had another member ask if it works on his 800 Mhz radio.

THANKS!!

You install it wherever you want but it needs to be run in pure DOS only, don't have any instance of Windows running at all. Second, if you run it on anything newer than a Windows 98 machine (booted into DOS of course), you run the risk of bricking the radio.

I have an old Pentium II, Windows 98 machine with a real serial port that I boot into DOS and it works fine with the HT1000 RSS.

Edit: I'm a little confused with the last part of your question. Are you asking if you can go out of band with a particular radio, completely change a radio's band or is different software needed all together for each band?
