• 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 purchased a new 2970n2 from Bob's CB, with mods and a precision alignment of all section. From my 1st phone call to his staff who answered all my questions with professionalism, to the "Craftsmanship" of his work ( example: each switch for the mods he installed on the back of the unit, he professionally marked each switches function ) I could tell I was dealing with top notch operation. The unit arrived professionally packed, without a mark on it, and the radio was so nicely put back in the original packing, you could not even tell he had it out of the box. In addition, I could tell how well it was "precision aligned" the moment I turned it on! I am proud to have a radio that was tuned and modded by a true icon in the CB / Amateur hobby. Great job Bob, of Bob's CB...and staff too....
