• 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.

Looking for recommendations on repair shop to repair APX, XTS, XTL radios. I work for local fire department and need somewhere to send radios for repair.

Thanks

Sunny Communications in Colorado has a steady amount of parts on hand for the XTS/XTL series, and they also do repairs. You’ll save yourself from a lot of headaches if you find an authorized dealer/MSS located near you, though.

Deal with a gentleman named Barry over at Bearcom - Atlanta, GA he's a good guy and very smart in what he does with radios.

Talk about memory lane - we had a Bearcom in Connecticut for years. Originally it was in Hartford then they moved to Bloomfield. Then ( like 8-10 years ago ) *poof* they just closed down the CT office.
They were all super nice guys and I have known them for years.
