• 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.

This is not a request for pirated software. There seems to be some confusion about how to get Hytera Customer Programming Software. It may be mostly on my part.

I bought a Hytera MD782G today at a flea market that included the programming cable. The seller said the software was available free from the Hytera Website. I want to program the radio for the local Ham DMR repeaters.

However, I see no link for the files on the US website, just some funny matrix thing with brief references to radio models and accessories. I registered with the site and only see brochures and warranty info in the file download section. I did find some download listings on the china site, but they are only for distributors and partners.

Doing some research it seems the software is only available through my dealer. So do I now have a paperweight because the seller did not pass on the programming software with the cable?:mad:

It appears the radio firmware is Version 4.5 and I need to upgrade the firmware to use the available CPS.
