• 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.

The accessory pins on the side of my radio are corroded and wore off...not allowing me to program it. Does anyone know the part number for just the pin area? Do I need a whole new board? Thanks!

What you need is a new flex ribbon, you don't need to recase the radio. what I would do is try and find a HT750 that is listed non working or for parts only and take the flex out of that.

Is the board completely corroded through? I noticed with a few HT1250's at work that don't have the accessory port covers had a slight bit of corrosion on the contacts. I was able to gently scrape the oxidation off with a tiny screwdriver, and it worked fine.

Universal Connector Flex - Motorola p/n 8415169H01 list $ 16

You will also need a new escutcheon (black sticker) for the universal connector p/n 1386058A01, list $ 11 (24 pack)

You'll need the equipment & skills to unsolder the microphone and speaker from the old flex and to install them on the replacement flex.

I'm surprised that the new flex's don't come with a mic or speaker.
