• 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 need to connect a Kenwood TK5710 to a 3010r Intercom. Does anyone know if there is an adapter cable for this or the pin outs for the 12 pin square plug from the remote control head (KRK-6DH) to wire it to the 3010r Intercom?

Firecom makes cables for all the popular radios. Call your dealer to get one for your radio. If you want to roll your own I can provide the pinouts (as long as you have the parts to do so).

I contacted Firecom and got a quote for the cable. Why is the cable so expensive? I thought it was just a cable with a mini plug at one end and wire at the other end to be inserted with pins at the 12 pin connector.

Because they are assembled by hand by qualified employees (?) and they are an accessory item which gives manufacturers a license to bend you over.

If you want to make your own, you'll need the flying lead cable supplied with the 3010, the 12 pin molex shell supplied with the 5710 and several pins not supplied (google Molex pins 0.062"). Here's the drill:

3010 pin # ---> 3010 cable wire color ---> TK-5710 pin #

1 BROWN MIC HI 4
2 RED MIC LO 5
3 ORANGE PTT HI 6
5 GREEN HOOK NO 7
6 BLUE SPEAKER 10
7 VIOLET SPEAKER 11
4 YELLOW and 9 BLACK GROUND 3

In the 5710 programming you'll need to make Function Port>Head>AI/1 = EXT PTT and AI/2 = hook.
