• 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.

Hello,
I have a Turner Plus 3 that has been converted from 8 pin to 4pin. It keys up just fine but no audio comes over. I have tested it on a Ranger RCI-6900F . I then tried it on a Realistic TRC-432. Same result. On the realistic I am using a 4 pin to 5 pin converter cable , however that cable has been tested with other mics and works just fine.
Do you think the problem might be with converting it from 8 to 4 or just something going wrong inside of the mic ?
Thank you.

Impossible to diagnose with your description. I would download the original Turner manual to see what colors do what in the mic cable and download the needed mic wiring for your radio. You can then open the mic connector on the mic and see what pins the ground, red, black and white go to, then use an ohm meter to see if they end up on the correct pins at the radio.

I have a Turner Plus 3 in storage that I would like to install on my old Motorola base station if I could find a wiring diagram for it. And of course the right connector as well. It is connected to my dad's old Johnson Messenger 223 base unit right now (also in storage) and I don't remember what connector it has.

Hello again , Im sorry for not replying soon than what I have . My problem was the mic was able to key up but it would not send any audio , it turned out to be an issue with the battery holder. I took it to a local cb shop and he plugged it in and it worked, for a second. He moved it , and the battery moved and it stopped working for a second. He clipped the old battery plug and soldered a new one on and it worked. I found a link to a schematic if anyone needs it .

The Motorola CB mic connectors show up occasionally on Ebay where I picked up a few really cheap. The mic wiring is on the Internet if you punch in the model of the radio.
