• 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.

Need some info/ help......

Hello?.......


I'd check the usual sources.

The items are pretty unusual so expect a inside job from someone you know. Maybe you be more careful saying what you have online and on the air.

I'd expect them more from CB than ham radio but some things don't change..

Live and learn.

Pretty easy to replace. I don't know if Motorola currently manufactures the Smart RIB and MOL currently isn't letting me log in to check (PN for a SRIB is RLN1015*). The cables are also extremely easy to find if needed through eBay, Motorola or other sources.

I suggest a good third party rib box package that supports the Motorola cables so you can get back in operation in short order.

I'd also suggest you install a video security system so you can find out if they come back who they are and have video evidence to hand over to law enforcement.

I purchased an Arlo system from Netgear and own five wifi cameras and they work great.

Good luck on your procurement.
