• 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 have a Realistic Navaho TRC-30A CB Radio that I just purchased, it did not have a AC power cord.
Does anyone know if this is a common cord. We have thrift shops in my area so maybe I could find it there if it is common.
I will include a photo of the connector on the back of the radio.

Thanks,Jim.

It's still a common connector. Some small home electric items use the same bi-pin arrangement like our pasta machine and our cheap, craft quality glue gun. Also many computer AC power supplies for laptops also use a connector that will fit as do electric shavers.

There should be no difficulty finding it. If you have the DC cord, it's better to use an inexpensive external 2-3A regulated supply with the Navahos and most any other base Hitachi made. The supply in the Navaho is not regulated and insufficient. You'll notice that the radio's lights will dim on modulation peaks. That was common to many radios of the time that had built in supplies.
