• 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 trying to set up a Minitor II for Set 8 (A-B, C-B) however there is no 3c3 jumper on the board. I am assuming that my board is a different revision than the one on the batlabs site. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!!!

Jumper 3C3 is only found on very early II series boards. On the newer boards (which the majority of the series had), 3C3 is replaced by 3C8 thru 3C11, which are found next to the tone filters.

To enable Set 8 (A-B, C-B) paging on the majority of II's:

3C1 - OUT
3C2 - OUT
3C4 - IN
3C5 - OUT

3C8 - OUT
3C9 - IN
3C10 - IN
3C11 - OUT

Note that with Set 8, you'll have to actually cut the traces on 3C8 and 3C11 with a sharp X-Acto knife or razor blade to break continuity, they are not solder pads like the rest of the jumpers. 3C9 and 3C10 are regular solder pad jumpers, which you would close after cutting the traces.

No problem. Good luck with it, and take good care of that thing! The II series was and is the best voice pager ever made, forget all that new modern crap that doesn't work half as well! (I still have a 1967 vintage Plectron running 24/7 open monitor for the past 15+ years!)
