• 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.

Does anybody remember these? Back when low band was popular we used to use them for base stations but not I can't find any or even the part number. They accepted standard CB style whips, 4 of them as the title says and an SO-239 connector and mounted on top of a piece of 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" pipe. The cable ran up the inside of the pipe. A manufacturer, part number, or anything would be helpful

Thanks
Birken

It was 4 whips down, and 1 whip up. It is called a ground plane and the whips are 3/8-24 thread. Good luck finding just the hub assembly. look at CB antenna manufacturers and maybe cut it down to the frequency required.
Real low-band antennas at Tessco or Talley are very expensive.

The ASP model is no longer available. Look at SauderElectronics.com for their mounts. Their 3/8-25 to SO-239 mount is what you need. Just add some additional hardware to support the ground plane, you have what you need. They also sell the 3/8-24 ferrule so you can buy stainless rods at a local metal supplier like SpeedyMetals.com

Also look at AntennaPartsOutlet.com for additional hardware for mounting.
