• 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 an opportunity to obtain a few Micor base receivers. These are incredibly sensitive and selective and are already on a couple channels I want to monitor all the time. I could get audio amps and speakers for each receiver but I was wondering if anyone has used any type of audio mixer in this application.

I have seen a scanner audio mixer mentioned before but haven't been able to locate references to it. I also don't know if it will accept the high impedance input that is used by Motorola base radios (600 ohm?)

Any suggestions?

Micor? Now I'm starting to date myself. I was fully working on Comms when those were just on the drawing boards.

yes, they are a great reciever, but.........they'd only be good until 2013 when we all have to go narrowband, but..........yes there are modfications if you want to spend the time and resources. And you have to find crystals. I have one with a Siltronix VCO connected which does quite well, until the garage temp warms up then have to re-adjust only so often.
Then I ended up taking an old Regency scanner Digital VCO and connecting there. Now I've got a super-high sensitive VHF only scanner.

The nice thing about those are you can chain link the receiver antenna inputs to one antenna without any sensitivity degradation. Audio? Id get a cheap radio shack mixer and find the line output and connect to the mixer from there.
Are these the sattelite receivers? if so the line output card if not taken provides plenty of line audio voltage to accomodate any mixer.

the size of that system is now 1/10th including the power supply and wild cards.

Good luck and have fun.
