• 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.

MCC7500 Speaker Mounting

Hello All,

We are having an issue where our MCC7500 Speakers sit on the desktop and are able to be moved around the console for cleaning and dispatcher preference. I have noticed that this causes alot of strain on the cable connections causing intermittant audio comming through the speakers.

Do they make a speaker bar that attaches to the monitor for the select/Un-select speakers. If not how does your agency have the speakers mounted?

Thank you for your help!

I had the same problem with early failure of the speaker cables, I replaced the Motorola cables with very flexible CAT5 jumpers with moulded connectors. To replicate the custom pinout of the Motorola cables I made an adapter using a keystone RJ45 jack and a short piece of cable with a RJ45 plug. The adapter plugs into the VPM, then standard network jumpers from the adapter to the speaker pod.

So far no failures and if needed replacement cables are a fraction of OEM cost.

Ty rap the cable to the speaker bracket, leave some slack to take the strain off the cable connector.
