• 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 have a MT 1000 and do not know what to do with it. I was wondering if I could reprogram it to monitor Fleetnet control channel, so I could use it to just to run trunk88 or unitrunker. It is a MT1000 with the keypad on the front, it is VHF and is programmed for 153.080 right now. I have no idea what to do with it, is it garbage or is there some use for them?

You can't trunk with it, so fleetnet would be out of the question. If you are a ham, you could use it for 2 meters. Otherwise, I think they will be doorstops come 2011 when narrowbanding hits.

He should still be able to use it for MOH conventional channels depending on the split ,he's in Ontario so I don't really know if the narrowbanding hit would affect him at all.

He isn't wondering about trunking with it, he's wondering about having it programmed to the control channel for the local Fleetnet channel and then using it with Trunk88 or a similar program.
