• 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.

Programming software for this radio used to be available on a Yahoo group dedicated to it but that group no longer exists. Does anyone know where the software can be found these days?

Thanks,

Andy

Thanks. When I went to the download link from their main page it took me here, which only shows one download for a different radio, so the direct link is helpful. Are you able to actually download files from the page you linked to? When I try, all it does is open the same page in another tab. Inspection of the HTML shows that the links are all blank. Any ideas?

Hmmmmm. You're absolutely right. I know those downloads worked a week or two ago, as I downloaded one (different model) for a friend of mine. Now all the links appear to be broken for every model.

They do have a Contact page, but I don't know how far you would get there. I'm guessing they're in China.

I dissolved the Yahoo group and moved most of the files here.
