• 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.

Okay, so I broke my charging / programming port on my G5 pager. Does anyone know how to get this pager a part so I can make the repair? I believe I can solder the port back onto the board, but heck I cannot figure out how to get inside the pager. Any help is greatly appreciated, I do not have the money to send in for the company to service. I was quoted nearly $200.00 for a repair.

If you are covered under a warranty, then the repair would be free with Unication. If you are outside of warranty, the estimate is about what you could expect from their repair department.

If you need help finding out if you are covered under warranty, I can help you with that.

Wow. I can't believe how high the quote is for the issue.

Same thing happened to mine, it was taken care of under warranty, they sent me a refurbished one. I bought a charging base and rarely use the side port now, it's pretty wimpy if you rely on it to charge it every night.
