• 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.

Hey folks,

I just scored a virtually mint condition Motorola MTX 9000 with a battery LCD screen w/ no pixels missing and a NMN6193C Mic for $3.00 in a garage sale!. My problem it is a 900 MHz and the radio itself is useless to me. I was wondering if this radio is desirable at all and how much you think I could get out of it.

PS. It has the half keypad.

they can be used for 927MHz ham, and with a good display, the front cover can actually be worth more than the radio. I have a few VHF MTS2000 model 2s made in 2001 that all have "LCD cancer".

I try to find cheap MTX radios (the older ones made before 1998 don't seem to have LCD problems, Motorola switched manufacturing of the front cover display/keypad board to a different supplier after 1998 and thus, cheap crap from China strikes again) to rob the front cover flex/keypad/LCD assemblies off of.

I am sure you can list your minty MTX9K on ePay and get big bucks.
