• 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.

MASTR Exec II Question

Not open for further replies.


There's stuff I can't tell you...
Jun 16, 2013
I've got a couple of mastr exec ii mobiles that I came into possession of post them being scavenged for parts. One had part of the pa removed, another was missing the control board and exciter and the third was all there full of evidence it had tried to play submarine at one time or another.

Anyway, using the two that haven't tried to play submarine I consolidated the two into one single unit to use for a repeater (amateur) conversion. However I noticed two things, the antenna relay is missing from both units as are the harmonic filters. I'm assuming that the harmonic filter needs to be present (or does it?) for the pa to properly function.

Any idea how to tell if the one in the submarine radio is salvageable?
