• 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.

Sorry if this question has been asked already, I had looked at hooking an external speaker up to my TK-7180 and 8180 mobiles through the mono jack in the back of the radio, is there a way to connect this that does not mute the control head speaker? some setting in the program maybe? I'm not exactly pulling my hair out over it, but not having any luck.

No, sorry the internal control head speaker is wired to the jack and is disconnected when you plug in the external speaker.

You'd need to use the KAP-2 accessory cable to do that.
Are the internals similar to the NX700? Remember that issue I had awhile back where the internal wouldn't turn off when connected to an external speaker and it turned out the previous owner had wired a single jumper in there...?

EDIT: For reference, here was that thread: NX-700 - External Speaker Only?
