• 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.

Vertex VXR-7000 Questions

I am being given the opportunity to purchase a lightly used VXR-7000 repeater from my local fire district. They are moving to a county wide system and this was used as a desktop repeater at a distant station and hasn't been used much.

I am doing some digging on google and such and trying to figure out is this repeater locked to a specified range for emergency services or can it be reprogrammed for 2M or 70CM via software only?

It appears that there are two versions one for VHF and one for UHF but not making heads or tails of if it's possible to change from one to the other or not.

Anyone with specific knowledge of this repeater that can fill in some blanks for me?

@mods Why was this moved to a completely wrong category? It was posted in amateur radio equipment because it is regarding a repeater to be used on the 2M band!

If you're going to move threads around at least give people a way to contact moderators to address issues!

It was not a commercial radio question. It was about taking the repeater and programming it for amateur use.
