• 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.

If you have a decent rework station and proper tools and are good at fixing flex cables with a solder station then yeah. I have worked on many flex cables before and it is very time consuming and pia. More of I wanted to see what I can do and test self. While it worked it was very time consuming and not ideal but a good self test. It is more ideal and cheaper to either buy a refurbished housing with the electronics or find a person who is selling them individually on ebay or actual vendors who still have the parts.

If it's the main rf board it could be fixed but you'd need the part and reflow station. I have not seen them individually anywhere in some time. If you have stuff laying around you could attempt a switcheroo but it isn't for the faint of heart working on the radios one foul and it's done. If it's a hobby radio and older you could plug the flex in and hot glue it lol seen that done before when person didn't want to spend any money.

Mol account if you have one could also yield a result. Though you would need to do some solder rework preferebly with a reflow station but it's possible to do it the other way.
