• 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 new to Kenwood radios, I have a TK-7150. Doing my research I have seen that these particular radios are capable of MDC1200 encode, but will the decode a MDC1200 ID? MDC is the only format of ANI used in my area, thanks.

You will need he CIM-1000 (MDC-1200) ANI board (list 131.25) and the CIM-Cable (list 61.25) to program the board.

CIM-1000 board for Kenwood

Oh, ok. thanks
Almost.
The CIM-1000 board is an encode only board, that can be installed in the TK-7180/TK-8180 model radios.
It doesn't offer to decode, which I believe is what your looking for. The Kenwood sales slicks mention that you can get MDC1200 [encode only] at the time of initial order (a CIM-1000 installed by Kenwood) , as an option.
I suppose if your looking for "decode", you could go with a real motorola radio or the rather spendy decoder
that is offered by Cim tech corp. It works pretty good and can do alias decoding too.
See:

Ok, its not really a big deal... my other radio is a CDM1250 and it works just fine. It was just a more " just out of curiousoity" question.

Thanks for the replys guys.
