• 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.

Does the radio have a typical female jack to plug in a charger, or does it require a drop-in charger? If its the first case, rigging something up should be easy enough. Interesting radio, resembles something in the Yaesu family.

I had one

Looks like a puxing px777.

Sent from a rotary phone
I had one of those too and I believe it is a puxing too, It is a real pain to find ctcss codes because they are numbered does not show the tone itself. I looked online and did find a chart telling what numbers corresponded to the tone freq.
I sold it it was a pain to cross reference on what tones you needed by using the chart.

It does look like a Puxing 777, maybe an older one. It takes a drop in charger, unless it can charge through the ear or mic jack, and I doubt it can. Probably not worth finding a charger for it, as my friend never used it, so I have no clue if it even works.

I actually just popped the battery case apart, and the crappy soldered connections promptly came apart! I decided to make this a project radio, maybe couple it to an Arduino or make a node of some sort. I soldered leads onto the empty battery case, put 8 volts to it, and voila, it powered up!
