• 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.

Jim,

I was looking to see if I had someone local where if need be we could get face to face to talk. I have not fooled around with Moto radios. My brother was a Moto tech and he use to do a lot of programming at my house back in the 90's and I watched him.

My biggest thing was finding a radio in my band split and being able to add a DEK to it. I did not want to find out my radio code plug and s record would not support a DEK on AS.
I was wanting someone more familiar with the code plugs to read mine and tell me if it was and original or had it been hacked with hatchet to work on the radio.

My concerns may be unwarranted but just wanted to be sure of a few things before I ended up with a paper weigh or door stop. They not heavy enough to be a boat anchor if something goes wrong.

Will has been a great help to me so far I really appreciate him taking time to help me and everyone else helping me.

Tim
