• 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.

Anybody know where I could get a blue GP380/HT1250 in close to new condition or a blue casing/refurb kit for one? (At a reasonable price Ex: under $300)

As seen on page 4 of this document, Blue Radio Shown in This PDF Doc



Example of yellow refurb kit:

Oh, PS: Is there any other colors that I don't know about, I have a black one, Iv'e seen yellow one's, cameo ones, and now blue one's. Any others?

So I see. Not so easy after all. I'm assuming that big /\/\ charges an arm and a leg for them. Nobody from China selling after market blue kits?

The blue ones are "CSA-Approved," which is basically the Canadian version of America's Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Since they are approved, only Motorola will work on them. Not even dealers can get those blue parts because they don't want non-approved radios to be confused with approved ones.

I guess I'm pretty well out of luck then, even though I'm in Canada. I could probably go through moto, but I suppose I'd be looking at something like $600 - $800. I guess I'l stick on trying to find a yellow one.

Oh well, they are pretty cool looking but that's way too much unless you really need them.

Not for just the housing, it probably runs for like $60 or less. The whole complete housing kit probably sells for around $300 for the full featured one.
