• 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.

I'm aware of Otto Communications supplying speaker mics, but I came across Impact Communications that has a similar product line.

Anyone here familiar with them and their quality?

Thanks.

I have around 150 in use with XTS2500s on some cache radios deployed for COVID response. They seem to be holding up quite well. Audio quality is pretty good inbound and out. No issues with any cords breaking, etc. They were quick to get them to us, literally had 100 shipped overnight via our local dealer (Bearcom) and already had 50 on hand from an order last year.

I like Impact. They're well-stocked and responsive. Some of their product is upper shelf off-shore product, and some of it is darn near OEM. They're also flexible on pricing if you're getting into larger quantities.

Of all the companies I deal with, they're one of the best. Price, service, supply - all good to great.

If you ever rent radios from Bearcom...Impact is what their rental accessories are. They hold up fairly well but are still not bad in terms of cost.

They have several quality tiers--Silver, Gold, and Platinum so the warranty on each tier will vary.
