• 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.

What do I Need!

I have 6 two way mobile radio 45 watt vertex 4200 in 6 different trucks. I am looking for a unit to put in the office that will reach the repeater. I need something that will reach to the repeater. The 45 mobile units seem not to get out as well at the office location.

1-What radio do you recommend?
2-What antenna and mount do you recommend?

Thanks for the help

Your question cannot competently be answered in a forum like this. You need a qualified radio man to take a look at your precise situation and goals and then make a recommendation.

Let me simplify the question. If you were new to ham radio and wanted a good setup for your home that covered UHF frequencies from 450-470 mhz. What is a good begginner system and antenna. Also, would you need an amplifier. Thanks.
