• 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.

This application appeared today on fccid.io: AZ489FT7146

Motorola is adding to their 900MHz FHSS digital on-site business radios with the Curve Series. It is a DLR style radio with 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi added to it. I don't understand the "Curve" name to it. Should be interesting. It doesn't appear to have any Bluetooth capability but that might come in a future model. The 900MHz FHSS digital system is compatible with the DTR and DLR series radios.

I found the quick reference guide, which naturally has pictures. Like you said it should be interesting, but I am kind of confused on the WIFI aspect of it. From the sounds of the manual it might have some sort of VOIP functionality, but who knows, the quick reference guide isn't enough to gauge that info. User Guide

I too am confused on the WiFi aspect of it. Not much information is available yet. The Voice Assist Button (VAB) on the front is used to control the WiFi features. The Curve likely requires the CPS to set up the WiFi connection before using it.

Model: DLR110NBHLAA (HVIN: DLR110NB1)
The Curve name as a model name is strange. What will the next model be called?

900MHz default channels available to program: 10. With the Curve at the factory default settings, the 10 channels are compatible with Public groups 1-10 in the legacy DTR410/550/650 models and default channels 1-10 in the DTR600/700 models. Channels 1-6 are compatible with default channels 1-6 in the DLR1060. In general, the different models will talk to each other right out of the box at their factory default settings but the number of available channels will vary depending on the model.

Can the number of channels available to the end user be expanded with the CPS?
The DLR1060 has 6 channels by default but is expandable to 10 channels with the CPS.

Below is some data for FCC ID: AZ489FT7146 downloaded from FCCid.io.

The conducted output power cannot exceed +30.0dBm (1W) and the EIRP must be less than 4W.

The legacy DTR410/550/650 models were certified at +29.5dBm (890mW).
The DLR1020/1060 models were certified at +29.4dBm (880mW).
The DTR600/700 models were certified at +29.2dBm (830mW).

The conducted output power numbers listed on the FCC grant are what was measured from the individual test sample submitted to the lab for certification testing. Being slightly under the +30.0dBm (1W) legal limit is to account for measurement uncertainty and individual unit to unit variation and stay under the legal limit. It looks like the peak output power (conducted measurement) from the Curve sample submitted to the test lab came in slightly hotter than the DTRs and the DLRs. Connectorized samples are used for output power measurements.

We need to find more info about the WiFi aspect of it. This may be a first attempt at a networked DLR radio since most businesses likely will have in-store WiFi available to use.
