• 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.

Can you use a XPR-4550 separation kit on a VXD-7200 ? If so how hard and what modifications do you have to do ? Also does Vertex plan on having a separation kit for the VXD-7200 ?

The difference between the VXD's & MotoTRBO is the front panel and software. The VXD's are built by Motorola.

This is why Vertex Standard has these on the obsolete list, since they were replaced with the EVX models

To answer your question, yet you can remote mount the 7200 control head using the 4550 kit. I've seen it
done, but have not done it to mine.

Vertex won't come out with a specific remote mount kit for the 7200, as it's been announced that the VXD series is being phased out in favor of the EVX line, as VSTech said.

Sorry, just found your post here. Been busy this week.

You'll also need the 'remote mount kit' for the hardware to do this, as well as a cable.

I'd say it is the right part but no promises. As I mentioned, I have not done the mod, just know it has
been done. It should be the right cable. If I ever get around to installing my 7200 in my daily driver
I will be getting one of those cables and the kit as well. Still a project that's a few months away.

Here's another one:
