• 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 just noticed I got my gmrs license on the FCC website and I am wondering am I allowed to transmit on Gmrs freqs now or do i need to wait until the license comes in the mail. Not sure if the rules are the same as when you get your ham ticket. Also I know all you family members can use the Gmrs do they need to get there separate callsign or do they use the same one that was issued by the FCC.

Thanks
Michael

I would say your good to go. As soon as my call sign appeared on the fcc website i started talking. In terms of your family: on GMRS you, and your family can legally talk on the freq's. You friends would have to get their own license. Welcome to the GMRS!

Why is it that some people will invest $80 in a radio license and then try to find out what they can do with it?

Don't hate the player my friend, hate the game! There is no pre-required knowledge of any kind for this type of license, none! Just fill out the paperwork and send in the dough, that's it!

I realize there is no knowledge required to get the license. The radios we ordered came two days ago. In reference my quote "In God I trust, all others I monitor." , I realize this is mainly a radio/scanner/monitoring website but my monitor and your monitor are quite two different things entirely my friend. Entirely.
