• 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.

This should be interesting...

Hytera Communications Corporation Limited has won a verdict, where Changsha Intermediate People's Court of Hunan Province ruled that Quanzhou TYT Electronics Co., Ltd. infringed Hytera’s trademark by adopting the brand name “Tytera.

The company used the brand name Tytera for its products and promoting relevant products in the market. The court ordered Quanzhou TYT Electronics Co., Ltd. to pay Hytera RMB 2,800,000 as damages and ruled that they shall immediately cease all the infringement activities.

Probably just go with "TYT" as the brand name.

How does this work when the chinese for Hytera and the chinese for Tytera is not the same - HYT vs TYT seems to be different enough. We had ITV, ITA, ITN and ITC in the TV world, and they all were considered separate.

Will probably become a Tytorola.:wink:

Is this just a ruling on the branding or were there IP issues in radio design at stake as well?

I don't think that would work, since Hytera goes by "HYT". I didn't read the article, but I suspect that might have also been part of the court case.
HYT is a brand name for analogue radios by Hytera, not a synonym for the company name.
