• 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.

TK-830 Plug and Inversion questions

First I purchased several 830s with speech inversion module and standard head. I have now purchased another no SI 830 which has a remote mount head. Can I unplug the inversion module and plug it back into the remote head radio or this there other modifications to the radio that make the module work (jumper or soldering). If so I will just swap the remote head over to the other radio.


Second, the remote head is designed to have the speaker pluged into the back of the head. There is a jumper on the back plug on radio it is on the top row of the plug in the middle. I am guessing this may have something to do with this. Can I just remove the plug(jumper) and plug the speaker into the original plug. The way that I am installing this I need the speaker to be with the radio and not the head.

Thanks for all the help.

Ryan

basically my first question is can I just pull the inversion chip and put it right into another 830 with no further mods?

Most Kenwood radios require a mod for the plug in scrambler module. If you knew the brand of the board that would help.You can go to Midians or selectone and brouse over app notes for that radio that may help you a little

I have been told that it is a transcrypt I have email them for some info.

I was hopeing that someone on here will be able to recognize it. There are two diode/jumpers that cut around where it plugs into the board. That is the only thing I see.

You might want to check if the original audio path was cut. I know on ICOMS's if you install one of their scramblers you have to cut the audio path because the audio is now routed through the scrambler board.
That's probably the only mod you might have to do considering that is a plug-in board. Examine the paths on the boards carefully to see if one has been cut.
