• 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 and other Federal Officers were issued these great NX-700 radios but no software to program them. Going through official channels to obtain the software we're told takes quite some time, so we were told to purchase it and expense it back.

Does anyone know where we can get the software and cable? We need it quickly. The radios are installed but are useless to us as they are.

Thanks to all in advance.

You will need to buy it from official channels. Go to kenwood's dealer site and call a local dealer, they should be able to help you out.

Wow - easier said than done. It seems we almost need a letter from the President to get the disc! I have all our official documents but so far I keep hitting the same brick wall. Thoughts?

Never had a problem buying software from Kenwood. Maybe use another dealer! Some dealers are just dead set against sellng the software as they feel they should be doing he progamming
