• 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.

Here's a question for the Kenwood Pro's out there...

I recently re-programmed a number of TK760HG -1's with several channels in the 139 - 150 range (all legal and appropriate). Even though the published band spread for this model is 148-174, all of these freqs are working fine - except for the single 139 MHz one. This particular frequency is failing to lock on some radios but is working OK on others.

My question is whether or not the band spread of this particular model can be easily "tweaked" (by a dealer) so as to allow this errant frequency to operate on ALL of the radios?

Thanks in advance for any light that you can shed on this issue.

The published band range is what the manufacturer guarantees the radio will operate with rated specs. Any operation outside of this is just icing on the cake and Kenwoods seem to do well although it will vary from radio to radio as you have seen.

If the radio is unlocking at 139, the VCO can be adjusted slightly to lower the range at the expense of losing higher frequencies, say up in the 170's.
