• 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.

I have a new Kenwood TK-370G UHF radio I received when a local company went 'south' and with it I got 4 intrinsically safe batteries, 3 chargers, 2 speaker mics and antennas. I have the software and a cable is on order and I just had a few questions for this one:

1. Is this radio (with or without hardware mod) field programmable ?
2. Does this radio have a similar function to Motos MDC-1200?
3. What is the default split - 430-470? or otherwise and can it be modded via programming to go out of band +/- 20 Megs or so...if the split is tighter than 430-470MHz (e.g. 440-460).
4. I don't know yet what the firmware date is, so I acquired 4 different software versions for it.
5. Are firmware updates available online anywhere and can they be burned via the programming software?

Thanks Guys

I had an old TK-270 (had the speaker grille with just holes, not the newer horizontal slits) and as far as my experience with that..

1. Should be with no mods. There's a sequence of button pushes. I may have to see if I still have the info. I recall it being a pain in the rear.
2. Probably not, unless it came with an additional option board. (May have DTMF signaling)
3. Run the FCC ID # on the FCC site for bandsplit.
4/5. Dunno.
