• 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.

Looks like some nice older stuff. The pyramid is a power supply to power a radio. It appears that Wilson product is an SWR meter. To get on the air you'll need an antenna. You can get a magnet mount antenna and set it on top of something metal outside. What specifically are you asking? (The Tempo radio and channelizer are for 2 meters I think)

That Regency HR-2A is a 2m FM transceiver using separate transmit and receive crystals per repeater or simplex frequency. No PL code unless one adds a third party accessory (I haven't seen one for years). My first 2m radio was an HR-2B in 1977

... so I would guess the -2A would be c.1974 or so. I forget the transmit power, but 10w would be a guess. Good in its day. HTH.

I had a Midland CB like that years ago. Was a nice little radio, I want to say that I paid $20 for it in 1995 or thereabouts. Used it driving back and forth to college.
