• 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.

Mototrbo CPS 9.0 contact management

Is there any good way to import and export digital contacts from CPS in *.CSV or some other format for editing in another program, like MS Excel?

I’d like to be able to create/edit an external digital contact file that I can import into my different CPS files, as well as my Vertex-Standard CE 2.5 files.

I've got about 300 contacts that I have to use across several different radio models. CPS and CE 2.5 (which is a “lite” version of CPS) only allow for cutting and pasting of single contacts, and they won’t paste into an external application. This makes managing contact updates painfully inefficient.

I’m a relative noob on this programming stuff, so I apologize if this comes across as a dumb question, but I've searched every knowledge base I can access and have come up empty.

This may appear to be a problem for the RM application (which I don't have), but the majority of my fleet is V-S radios (VXD 720) were I can’t utilize RM anyway. I just need a simple import/export solution.
