• 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.

Ok;
I have a mystery here. I have a collection of Motorola Saber and Systems Saber radios from various model years and sources.

The serial number tags in some cases are on a black background with white lettering, but mostly a white background with black lettering, Now I find some with a white background and blue color lettering, except Motorola in brown and model number in red.

Is there a rhyme or reason to Motorola's inconsistency in serial number tags?

Yes I have seen some Depot tags that have an R for reconditioned, but none of the ones I have seem to indicate and depot related tag change.

Most of the Systems Sabers that we used to service at our shop had black labels with green writing. If we sent radios to the depot, they would sometimes come back with white labels with black writing.

I just pulled one from my stock that has green lettering on the black background. Some of these are federal radios the others non federal. I don't know if it makes a difference. I also notice the graphics vary quite a bit.
