• 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.

Is a trade for a Motorola HT1000 UHF 450-512 and a Motorola Visar, same split, with brand new battery for each, charger, etc, a good trade for a HT1250 in the 450-512 split? If not, what ?

Too many variables to say for sure. I do not like the HT1250 and would never own one, but I also know the what I can get the HT1000 and visar for as well. New batteries do not matter as once they are used, they are used and are not "new". I would not be sure how old they really were and how they had been charged.

Assuming both the HT1000 and visar are "D" revision and 16ch, have a GREAT battery from someone I trust to know how to charge them the right way, then the MOST I would ever go would be $100 each for those two. A charger would be a must for the visar but not for the HT since I have a few (and Impres too).

HT1250s are still a current item, but as I have said, I would never own one so I would not place a value as high as some would.

Reason I am attracted to the HT1250s is the Features.. Both the Visar and HT1000 are D Revisions and 16 channels. Sorry, forgot to say that at first :eek:

When you say know how to charge them, what do you mean know how? I want to see if I do it correctly. hah. :lol:

Also, What is a reasonable trade for the two?

On another topic, Whats the least amount you guys have seen a Basic XTS 450-512 go for?

Ok, what features? I know it does more channels but I like rugged radios, and that's one of the biggest issues I have with the entire HT750/1250/1550/8250/9250/etc family.



When you say know how to charge them, what do you mean know how?
Knowing what charger you have, and how it really works. Like people who use the 1171 charger as an overnight charger when it's usually finished (to about 100%) in three hours. Just because it says it is complete, does not mean it really is. Another reason many people prefer the Impres chargers and batteries :D



Also, What is a reasonable trade for the two?
Can't say, that can vary on what who has and what you want. You might find someone who wants to dump a 1250, you just never know.

I have seen model 1 XTS3000s go for under $200, but that is only 48ch with no display and an analog only flash, might need a new battery and charger (some jedi chargers will charge the XTS batteries though).

If you have a HT1000 charging cable, you can use it for the XTS3000, as well as the speakermic to save costs if you need those items.

An S split XTS3000 typically goes for around $200.00 like Mong said, and that's usually if it's an AN revision (the BNs are newer). Wiscomm up here has a handful for sale with new cases around $300 or so, but at that point you can get an AstroSaber 3 anyways.

Jedis are cheap. You could probably get $250 out of them combined on eBay, if you tried.
