• 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 recently went to program my TK480. I went to boot the WIN98 into MS-DOS. After reading and completing all the instructions I started the install. I have used it on the same computer before. When it said it already existed I clicked, "WRITE OVER." Once it said, "INSTALLATION COMPLETE" I opened up the program. It gives me the loading screen for a time ranging from 0.3 seconds - 1 second and then it went back to the command prompt! I even tried installing on different drives (A,B,C). PLEASE HELP ME! PS: The 1 or 2 times I've done it before it worked.

The TK-480 uses KPG49D, which has DOS & windows versions, are you sure you have the right software?

Yes, The previous owners said it worked and it worked for me. When it worked, it had an option for TK480/481. This is an old software(FLOPPY DISK).
