• 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.

Can someone tell me how to tell what the manufacture date is on Motorola batteries, specifically HT750/1250 and HT1000 batteries? One of my 1250 batteries has 443 then AKC1 on the front. Thanks.

443 would be 2004 / 43rd week

First digit is the year, second/third digits is the week of manufacturer

This can be confusing becasue the first 4 could be 1994 or 2004

I sure hope there aren't any 1994 batteries floating around, especially in public safety...lol

I believe Motorola went to a different date coding scheme for IMPRES batteries. All of my newer Astro Saber IMPRES batteries follow a nomenclature similar to their Serial Number system, in the fashion of 123ABC

Thanks for the info! This radio was new in 2003, so it should be a 2004 battery. I asked for a new battery in 2006 and got one with the 443 date code. The fire chief must keep a few stashed away somewhere. I asked for another new one last week and got one with a 729 date code.
