• 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 a predicament: I just bought a Motorola HT1250 at a hamfest. It came with an Impres battery model no. HNN4002a, and 2 chargers, the first being a impres model WPLN4114AR, and the second being Motorola charger model NTN8831A. Neither charger will charge th radio, excemt the NTN8831A charger, in which I have to shove crumpled up paper in it to even charge. Also, the battery doesn't fit that good in either of the chargers. If anyone has any suggestions or comments on why this is, I would greatly appreciate it.

because they are the wrong chargers for an HT1250 What you have are for an XTS3000/5000 or HT1000

You need a HKLN4226A. Can be had on Ebay for about $25. For the impress charger its going to cost you about $50 for a single charger or$325-$350 for a 6 bay one. The impress chargers are nice and condition your battery. But the impress batteries run a little more than a normal battery. I have 2 ht1250s and I have Batteries I rotate with them. Every few months I do run all my batteries thru a Motorola BMS to condition them.

The hnn9008a is a battery not a charger. AAHTN3000D Is the factory OEM charger. If you shop on amazon look up motorola ht1250 charger and look for a motorola one. Stay away from the aftermarket ones. When I just looked on amazon some are using the battery number for the charger. The only factory one I saw was $20 for a used one and $28 for a new one. Go with a new one if you can swing it. I went aftermarket once. I got 2 batteried and a charger for $75. The batteries crapped out after a year and the charger was right behind them. So after that I went motorola for everything. They last longer.
