• 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.

should have one Sunday. . .
Hoping it will work as a speaker mic for those radios but only expecting LCD to work on MD785 (or 655 but dont have one)
Was hoping to get a up/down button as per the hytera ring PTT (POA47)
will have a play with X1P and see if I get the same.

Works with 982 and x1p. Just volume up and down and push to talk. Kind of worthless for the money.

I get the same results but its what I expected. Here in the UK at least it is sold as only being compatible with MD65x and MD78x radios, not the portables. Any functionality at all with the X1P and 98x are a bonus! Wouldn't have bought just for portables.
Did give me host selection of X1p but no special functionality.
