• 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.

I have heard there is a repeater chip for the vx 2200 that receives a transmission and records it and then broadcasts it. Not a true repeater but I can see how it could be useful in some situations. Can't seam to find anything online, dose anyone know if there's something like this out there?

The VX-2200 has many option boards, but none of them acts as a repeater, unless you possibly modify a DVS-8 Digital Voice Storage Unit. The purpose of the DVS-8 is to record RX voice conversations, highly used with Fire Dept.
The known possible way to create a repeater with the VX-2100/2200 is by using the VXR-1000

Cheaper and a better range than a VXR-1000, since its only output is 5W and a mobile is 25/50W. Pretty cool.
