• 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 have just purchased a Motorola XPR6550. I am wondering if the proprietary antenna connector Motorola is using on this radio has a name. I was looking to purchase an adapter to use this radio on an outdoor antenna. It sounds silly given where the radio was built to be used but that doesn't change the way I want to use it. If anyone has any information on what this antenna connector is named or any info on where I could possibly buy an adapter to change it to any common antenna connector, I would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks

Actually there was

This makes sense. And no, there is no adaptor for the 7550.
When we were still programming radios, my Bearcom vendor did sell me an adapter for BNC that went into the antenna jack. I remember it was a pricey item. Sorry no clue what the part number would of been. When we went from the 6550's to 7550's, all departments are now in the radios in different zones, so no need to program anymore.

An antenna adapter for a 6550 should cost no more than $3. At least that's what I see them for, & paid in the past.
