• 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.

Hi everyone,
I have done a search of the forum but haven't quite found the answer I wanted so apologies if this is a dupe post:

I have a Motorola Saber III VHF handheld (Systems Saber) purchased as surplus some years ago that I want to have programmed. I work for a private EMS company and plan on using the radio for work as an interim until I can get a better replacement.

I've checked with the local shops here and nobody (of course!) has the capability anymore to program these models.

Are there any forum members that still have the RSS software able to program the handheld? Willing to pay reasonable costs for programming and return shipping. Thanks in advance!

The problem is that radio isn't narrow band so using on EMS service would pose some FCC compliance issues as well as a potential performance issue when used on the EMS system. I have the capability, but about the only places that VHF model can be used are the 2 meter ham band and VHF marine band depending on the internal band modules. They are great radios. I use the UHF models on GMRS.

Get yourself an HT1000 "DN" model version and you will be all set and legal.

Cost would be less than $150.00 and you'd be getting a good quality Motorola handheld.

I can program Sabers here in So Cal, but as mentioned the Saber , and System Saber does not comply with Narrowband regulations.

A HT1000 D model is a great radio and complies with the narrow band requirements.
