• 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.

Not sure. @kd4efm may know.

I've been getting them in at work without issue, but not sure when they were actually ordered. The new vehicles have been arriving from the upfitter with an NX-5700 and NX-5900 installed.

What numbers are the S/Ns starting with? EVS (shudder) may have old stock.

They appear to be relatively new, unless they threw updated firmware in them before installation.

As for EVS, so far they've done better than all the other shops we've used. I only had to spend about an hour cleaning up crap on the EVS installs. The last one we got out of whatever shop up in Burlingame, or wherever they were, took all day.

Are they C0 or B9 serials?

I haven't heard of any delay but I haven't ordered any recently.
