• 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'm hoping someone can help me. I got a free tk-7180. It had a flashing message about LTR net firm. I have access to the firmware change. I successfully changed it. Now I have programming access, however it is password protected. Both write and read. Does anyone know of a way to rest or override this?

There's a way but it requires the "engineer" logon for the KPG software.
Some people have it and will share it.
Other option is to send it in to Kenwood. They can clear it.

I have the kpg software. Unfortunately not an engineer logon. I know there is a place in Syracuse NY called United Radio that has the capability. I just don't know how much. So if anyone has that logon....... i would greatly appreciate the help.

Furnish the serial number to the local dealer and then they can send them a file that will erase the password. You will lose the programming information though.
