• 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.

When Hytera came out with FW9, it removed all the Moto “stolen” features they were sued over. It’s been out for a few years now. I’m also trying to figure out how a US court can force a Chinese company to “pay up“. The US distributors are a different company than the parent company in China.

Hytera just announced the PD 6 and 7 radios are end of life, along with the RD982 and X1P.
The latest firmware is 9.2.4.1
CPS is 9.2.12.0

UK distributors put out a note several months back about the wholesale discontinuations of hytera lines. Leaves a few holes. Can't find it back but from what I remember
PD3xx series discontinued, suggested replacement BP5xx
PD6/7 discontinued, suggested replacement HP6/7xx
X1p suggested replacement HP6/7xx
PD985 discontinued, no replacement (no current duplex or sfr offerings)
etc for repeaters and mobiles

Leaves quite a few holes, for me the PD35x really misses a replacement. The BP is not a replacement, too large and no pseudo trunk. Killing SFR is also a loss (but I kind of expect we will eventually get a HP9xx and the full duplex HM).

All of this does kind of make sense. I work in a not dissimilar size electronic environment and the chip shortage at the moment is a real problem and it effects primarily old designs (because the chip foundrys are over stretched and therefore not producing older, less profitable chips). Most manufactures in our industry have to either discontinue older products, or redesign them to use more recent and higher cost chips.

For Hytera, I imagine trying to keep all the aged PD ranges in production would be a nightmare.

Hytera still does SFR. The new H series support that still. Least on the HP782 line. Same on the BD5 series all have pseudo trunk. Just deployed about 100 of them and all had it.

BP not BD, BD are also being discontinued. BP512 BP562 AP512 and AP562 are the new low tier digital and analog radios (assuming your US based)
Your wrong on the 782, it doesn't have the hardware to do full duplex. The HM has the new IP connect (but no sfr)

The July 'broke tera' price book shows the PD982i as special order for 800 Mhz, no V or U.
No single freq repeater option listed for the H series as you mentioned.

The jury must have known...

I don't recall the details now but do recall a Hytera sales person saying Motorola 'stole' advanced audio features for Trbo.
There are some threads about the Motorola case in this forum, some my postings, some others.
