• 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 recenlty came across one of these units and have a few question hopefully someone here can help me with:

1) If I want to go dual band, single head what kit and do I need to buy anything more than a TK-890(H)?

2) An ANI Board; how much? Hard hard to install for PTT ID

3) What is the antenna connection for this radio? PL-259?

According to the brochure http://www.prairiemobile.com/Docs/TK-790H_Brochure.pdf
you would need the KRK-7DB and both radios. If you have the 790 then all you need is the 890 and the KRK07DB control head.
See page 3 of the brochure

Right here...
You will need a KRK-7DB kit and it will come with the jumper cable that goes between the radio's, You will then need a KCT-22 to connect the control head to the radio pair and they come in 3 diffrent lengths. The radio has an accessory port inside that the ANI unit if it is designed for the X90 series should plug right into. And the radio's have SO-239 jacks.
