• 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.

Wondering if anyone knows if the Icom BC-119 Desktop Rapid Charger is compatible with the newer BP-211 which is a Lithium-Ion battery. I know the BC-119N is compatible with Lithium Ion batteries, but I am wondering if the older BC-119 is also compatible. Thanks

It is for an older Icom F3-GT handheld radio. I currently am using a Ni-Cad battery (BP209) but would like to get a Lithium Ion battery (BP211) for longer use and easier charging. Wondering if the older BC-119 charger is capable of doing this or if I need the newer BC-119N charger.

The BC-119N (note the "N") is a tri-chem charger.

If there is no N it will not charge a Li-Ion battery.

You MUST use the AD101 adapter cup to charge a Li-Ion BP211N in the BC119N base.
