• 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.

Moderators, if this is off base listing it here, delete it or put it to the classifieds. Since I am not selling the stuff, I didn't want to put a classified ad in, anyway. Didn't know what to do. I was afraid motorola fans reading this forum may not notice it in the classifieds before the time was expired May 18th, so I thought to show you guys here. I hate to see stuff like this slip through the cracks if someone could profit from it or could use the equipment.

The auction company doesn't know any better and they listed the stuff with Motorola and "C.B". in the descriptions, so they have no idea what they are selling. They sell lots of things and I just happened by and saw all the radios. Kind of a local auction house, but they sell lots of stuff on consignment via the web. Also Kansas department of revenue seized stuff, too! Always something interesting!

The stuff could be obsolete, or could be a steal~ I don't know- especially from the pictures. Surely one of you clever fellows may recognize some of the items and descriptions of the radios. Right now it is cheap.

Again, I apologize in advance if this is wrong.
