• 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.

Hi Guys,
I have this problem with my brand new radios,2 VX-2200.Well the problem is about the comunication from PC to Radio.
Naturally I'd like to inform you about my configuration:
RTX : VX-2200E
USB programming interface : FIF-10A
Adapter cable : CT-104A
SW : CE82 ver.1.10W

Ok,when I launch my SW and choose the button "upload" the RTX'S display go in SELFTEST + TONE (listen),appair NOW UPLOADING (on PC SW) and error message appair COUNICATION ERROR!
Naturally the RXT return with VERTEX channel name in OEM configuration.
So I try to change the SW CE82 in ver.2.0 but obtain the same error.
The USB programming inteface is good install with right driver under Windows XP

Really,I don't know what I do.... :-(

Thanks for all and I hope to receive some support.
