• 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.

Generally anything built after 1999, and some as early as 1992. For your own research take the FCC id and use this: OET -- FCC ID Search
Also BTW as of 4-19-2012 T-band radio's and frequencies do NOT have to be narrow banded. If you have a mixture of T-band and non T-band frequencies in that radio then the non-T have to be narrow banded. The FCC changed it's mind, due to a proposed giveback, which I hope doesn't happen, unless they want to give me some free and clear channels somewhere else.

Thats a Hard Call Since There are so Many Makes and Models that were Produced thru the Years...According to the Mandate if i Read it Correctly Anything from 1996 and Lower is Not NARROWBAND Conpatiable....but Like I Said it Depends on the Manufacturer and the Componenets that were Used

Cool! Thanks for the help, so far.
Here's why I ask the question. I have been give a list of radios by my county and they are asking which radios will need to be replaced and which ones just need to be "narrowbanded".
They are a mix of Kenwood, Standard, Motorola, Uniden, Rengency you get the picture.

Hope this helps.

Our agency has nearly 4000 radios, I found that even some with the same model numbers were and some were not, based on the FCC ID. If you have a list of your radios, it may be easier to just run the FCC numbers. I also noticed a lack of GE/Harris radios listed out there, and there also are some radios that may have had narrow band kits made for them, but still don't meet the guidelines. Better be safe than sorry, run the numbers through the FCC database.
