• 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.

I know this may be a long shot but is there a way to make a 4 channel ht750 a 16 channel.

Thanks in advance for your help

This can be accomplished by forcing a 16ch code plug into it via Lab (i believe its called), then assigning the side buttons as the channel up/down. This is the same concept that you can do it you want to use a 750 on an LTR system, simply by forcing a 1250LS codeplug into it.
I myself have never done it so I can't tell you the steps to it. There may be other ways in addition, of course.

the pro series radios are flash masked ROM's for channel capacity so a 4 channel CT250 or HT750 cannot be made a 16 channel without major surgery including changing the channel rotary. In theory you can try to force a 16 channel labtool codeplug but chances are not in you favor the radio will work again and can become bricked.
These radios are not like the old GP300's where you can labtool a 2 channel to and 8 or 16 channels, cut out the channel knob stop pin and change the channel sticker.
Just invest in an HT1250 or 1550, you will find ebay has them cheap right now.
