• 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 have some projects coming up later this year and next year which will require CPS 2.0 and I am looking for some clarification. Does CPS 2.0 require you to have a list of serial numbers for all of the radios which need to be programmed?

I may have misinterpreted this, but my understanding is that you have to get a list from MSI which includes the serial numbers for each radio ahead of time. Is this correct, or is that only needed when conducting firmware updates? Thanks.

in RM you have to add the SN to the software to read the radio. You are able add them from the list MSI provides as an excel sheet, but you can just type the SN in if you want. Or scan the barcodes. This is annoying of course, but in RM it makes sense. In RM you would highlight all the radios you've added and then hit write. you could then plug each radio in, it would detect what radio you plugged in an execute your write job to that radio.

Unless you use Cap max or OTAP you won't need to use RM. I personally don't ever use it.
