• 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.

You should have a radio shop that is local to you. Just be prepared to show that you have permission to use the frequencies that are to be set for transmit.
A quick search shows one in Seminole, OK

Yes, OHP won't like it if you transmit on their frequencies

Low Band Programming

If he is in OK I doubt very much he could have an influence on CHP. Skip hasn't been that good. But spending the money to have the radio programmed means that thought should be given to the scan lists for each channel in advance so he wouldn't have to build a scan list everytime he changed channels. Or pay for more programming.

When listening to the CHP with my Maxtrac I programmed the scan lists so I would scan the channel ahead of me and behind me when set to a particular district so I had awareness of traffic conditions and resolutions as I traveled across the state. When I reversed direction I still had the next channel and the previous channel being scanned. I miss that with my Kenwood for it does not have individual scan lists per channel but at least it has an alphanumeric display so I know what I am tuned to without having to memorize so many numbers.

Have fun.........

The man referred to OHP not CHP. The gent who wants his radio programmed is in Oklahoma, not California.
