• 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.

Most popular TETRA bands:

Frequency Band / Duplex Space
350–370MHz / 10MHz
380–400MHz / 10MHz
410–430MHz / 10MHz
450-470MHz / 10MHz
806-824 & 851-869MHz / 45MHz
870-876 & 915-921 MHz / 45MHz

380-400 (or parts thereof) is typically reserved for public safety organizations & military in Europe but also in parts of Asia while 410-430 was allocated for civilian (private / commercial) use in Europe and is used in other parts of the world, too.
In Mainland China 350-370 is reserved for national security networks while the first 800 band listed above is e.g. used in Hong Kong for private networks, and 450-470MHz is 'popular' in Russia. For South America see the Wiki article.

Basically TETRA can be used in any band from 100-1000MHz (as per current standard), as long as you can find someone to make equipment for it.
