• 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 did try to search, and I am not sure if these is covered on a Sticky thread, but, if anyone is tracking:

I filed and paid for my GMRS application yesterday at 1:20 PM License was granted at 2:00 AM this morning. Thus, about 12 hours to get a license grant. (Note, I had an existing FRN that I tied it to, and I use paperless delivery settings at the ULS site. )

None the less, I just printed out my 'official copy.'

That appears to be pretty typical turn around times for GMRS licenses. Many years ago mine was similar, almost same day.

For a federal agency..... that's a pretty good turn around time... and I must say, pretty typical of the FCC....

If all our other federal agencies were as good..... imagine the happiness that would be floating around this country....
