• 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.

Motorola handheld micro from the MTH 800 compatible with DP4000

I'm contacting you as I haven't found anything on the internet anywhere.

I still have a microphone from an MTH800 and wanted to use it with a DP4800.
I once counted the wires and would have 6 wires like the DP4800.

Is it possible to solder the plug from the DP 4800 to the microphone so that all functions are guaranteed?

Thank you

From the land of sky blue waters!
There are a lot of variables involved, and the only way to know for sure would be to have a full understanding of the specifications of the interfaces for both radios.

It's kind of an 'out there on the fringes' thing since these are two completely different radios (TETRA vs. DMR) and for most commercial/public safety users are going to order new microphones rather than try to adapter older ones.

If you can find service manuals for both radios and/or microphones, we could probably assist you.
