• 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 a number of batteries for the Motorola MTS-2000 radio that are still good, less than 6 months in service, except that one or both of the clips at the botton of the battery have broken off. Does any company sell just the housing for these batteries so I can repair them?

If you bought them new from a dealer Id return them if they are that new. Im assuming they are not original motorola batteries as I've had hundreds of Jedi batteries and the only ones that have cracked off are aftermarket. The only way would be to crack open some known bad motorola batteries gut them replace the cells and try to get them assembled back together.

Yes, they are after market batteries. They were purchased by a local Public Service agency so I am not sure what kind of warranty service they can get from the supplier but will check.
