• 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 am sorta kinda lost. I have KPG49D V4 software legitimately that I am using to program a TK380 radio with. The problem I am running into is I am using a adapter for USB Part # (RPC-K3U) and it won't recognize the current ttyUSB0 as a legitimate com port under Linux.

I know this might be challenging, but does anyone know by chance how I could get it to recognized the USB Dongle as a Com port? I'm pulling my hair out to get this to work...

Yeah I could use Windoze in Virtual Box I guess, but I am driven to get this darn thing working!

I know just enough about Linux to be dangerous, but with that aside, you might run the risk of bricking your radio once you do get it to read the radio. I gave up on that mission of trying to run things in WINE or other emulators a few years ago, and then recently on DOSBox. I found it easier to just give in and run it how it was intended to run on the operating software it was designed. If you do get it to eventually work, kudos to you. Good luck in your adventure!

When you run lsusb does it even see the usb side of the adapter?

I ran into some comm issues when using linux and chirp to program some amateur gear. What I found was that under my normal login account I didn't have access to the comm port you mentioned. I ended up having to run my programming software as a superuser in order to gain access to the ttyUSB0 port.

I know this isn't the exact issue you are referring to but it is something to chew on.

It's been a long time since I messed with 80 series but isn't there a DOS version of KPG49D? Could you run that under DOSBOX?
