• 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.

Remember your CB radio call sign?

My Dad's No. was KB00063.. that's what he passed on to me.. but when I was on the radio the License wasn't needed any longer so I used the numbers every once in a while but most of the time I mainly use my call sign *Snowman.*

It was neat to here all the CB lingo if you were going to Ft.Worth,TX you were going to Cow-town if your were going to KC you were going to bright-lights.. There are many more.. I listed some links here to see the many more..of them.:p K-bear

Hmmmmm... Finally found my much faded first license... 15W1132. (At least that is what SWMBO says it reads after all the years it's been in storage. {GRIN!}) Still looking for the others I had issued to me over the years though, I also remember that I also had KNE1755 because I just happened to end up living in an appartment building who's address also happened to be 1755 at the time it was issued. (I had actually managed to score one of the 2 apartments that had easy access to the roof of the building and the owner actually gave me permission to put up my antenna! [Just try *that* these days!])
