• 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.

This thread is an attempt to compile a working list FCC Part 95 rule-compliant MURS tranceivers and discuss their rule-compliant deployment / operations. This list is to include current and discontinued, Part 95-authorized equipment. Transmitters and transceivers "grandfathered" under Part 90 that comply or can be made to comply with MURS rules are not to be listed.

Rules governing MURS:
Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS) | FCC.gov

Part 95 Tranceivers:

Dakota Alert M-538HT
Dakota Alert M-538BS
Motorola RMS2050
Motorola RDM2080D
Motorola RDM2020

The list was generated on 2/26/2014 by the FCC OET Authorization Search page by searching for Part 95 equipment that operates on frequencies between 151.82 and 154.6 MHz.

Not all of these are conventional 2-way radios; some are call boxes, alarms and other wireless equipment.

Individual FCC ID numbers can be looked up at http://transition.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid .

Thank you for those contributions, gentlemen. Perhaps I should've requested the focus be narrowed further to a subjective term like "commercially available" transceivers as that was my intent, a qualifier lacking check box on the FCC OET Authorization Search page.

How about putting these into a Wiki for future reference materials, with the links to the FCC pages

This list is to include current and discontinued, Part 95-authorized equipment.

I'm not sure it's wiki-worth at this point. I was hoping there was some more equipment out there. I know there are a lot of options in grandfathered rigs but they usually require programing or modification to operate compliant or are easily capable of illegal transmissions. The "no-brainer" Part 95 MURS gear is a much smaller pool. I think MURS has a lot of unexplored potential but the equipment just hasn't been there since the advent of the service. Now, with the proliferation of cheap 5 - 65+ watt Chinese gear capable of operating all over VHF/UHF, I thought it'd be nice to have a discussion of "on the shelf" type MURS rigs and their implementation. It would be nice to have a clearinghouse to get people started in the right direction rather than people blasting high-power Maxtracs on Green Dot because they don't know any better and simply can't find out-of-the-box compliant rigs.

I was able to pick up a couple pieces of Ritron gear, a Jobcom base station and PT-150M. I'm looking forward to seeing how well they do. I have a couple Larsen VHF 5/8's, one ~30' above ground and the other as a mobile. I've been able to get out very well with Nagoya 771's on my Dakota Alert equipment runing at 1.1 watts so a couple more dB should be interesting. The Ritron gear is spec'd at 2 watts but we'll see.

Another problem has been the lack of detachable and/or non-proprietary antennas on Part 95 MURS rigs, something that appears to make Ritron unique in the category.

So this thread inspired me to try to make something of a "definitive" list of Part 95J certified MURS handheld radios (not grandfathered Part 90). My strategy so far is to do an FCC equipment authorization search for all Part 95J certifications, then manually go through the list to (a) remove all the call boxes, wireless sensing devices, etc and (b) identify the model numbers from the user manual, correspondence, photos, etc. Here is what I came up with (sorry tabs don't align well):

Radio Model FCC ID Final Action Date
JWIN JM-URS52 PM9MURS2 5/1/02
Columbia MURS-2 GAFMURS2 10/2/01
Dakota Alert MURS 538-HT QK8M538-HT 11/25/02
HK MURS 1002 PQXHKM1002 7/25/02
Tru Talk MURS-22 O7KMURS22 7/12/01
Motorola RDM2070D AZ489FT3837 7/8/16
Motorola RMM2050 AZ489FT3831 6/13/13
Motorola RDV2020 / CP110M AZ489FT3823 10/3/08
Powerwerx TERA TR-505 2ACK8TR505D 12/17/15
TERMN-8R T4K-8RSERIES 12/22/15
Ritron PT-150M AIERIT29-150M 10/22/12
TAIT TM-9100 CASTMAB1E 5/22/07

Some interesting results -- the JWIN JM-URS52 and HK MURS 1002 seem to be products that never made it to market. Big surprise is that TAIT TM-9100 which is a public safety P25 VHF radio.... I wonder if Part 95J was an accident for that one. The Tera TR-505 is a dual band Baofeng clone badged by Powerwerx for GMRS use but it seems it is certified for MURS too. I think the TERMN8R might have had its certification revoked, but not sure.

Would be interested to know if there are any radios missing from this list (note I'm only listing handhelds)

Tait TM/TP-9100

Radio Model FCC ID Final Action Date
TAIT TM-9100 CASTMAB1E 5/22/07

(note I'm only listing handhelds)
Minor point, but I think that the Tait TM-9100 is a mobile rig. I believe that the TP-9100 is the portable (handheld) model.

Regards,

Frank.

P.S. Thank you for your work on this!
