• 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.

Someone mentioned Motorola CBs in a post a while back, I had mentioned I had had one back in the 80's or e90s, and quit using it due to mic problems.

Well today it was warm enough to go outside without parts falling off, and I dug through my garage till I found it. An old 4022 40 ch with a CAL COM mic and a 4002 that I had picked up for parts at a flea market back in the day.

Well I tracked the problem down to a broken wire in the mic (PTT sw gnd) and now the ol' girl is working fine! I think I'll mount it next to my MaxTrac in my "Shack".

Just for s**ts and giggles I hooked up the 4002 parts radio, and it works! (I had never tried that) it just has parts of the case, mic and all the knobs missing...

Question: What's the difference between a Motorola "Mocat" CB and a plain Motorola CB? I see some Mocat radios on eBay so I was just wondering.
