• 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.

First I would do a search on the VX-354 in this forum. Similar issues covered with some
suggestions.
Check your config file setting for the com port in the Vertex menu. Could be port issue.
Possible radio is bad too or maybe programming cable not correct one or defective.
Someone in the forum probably has the answer

Mismatch Error can be caused by the three of the following:
1. Wrong Firmware
VX-354-AG?? or AD0B models should only have FW 1.25
Where as VX-354-G? or D0 models should have FW 2.04

2. Placing CE86 in manufacturer mode and cross loading the two models. Manufacturer mode can also fix this issue sometimes !!!

3. EEPROM defective

Does the serial number fall between 6Hxxxxxx and 9Hxxxxxx (8 digit)? If yes and you haven't sent it in for the free ceramic filter update (TB201206-4) do so. Free CF1001/1002, Firmware Update, and Realignment.

BUT, please tell Vertex "TB Only", if not you'll be charged flat rate.
