• 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 is your GMRS call sign?

Why not?

I'm WQKM383.
KAE9013 here. First issued 12/1992....before the creation of FRS and the unlicensed bubble pack radio invasion! KAE9013 also predates the FCC's Universal Licensing System (ULS). The callsign follows the format of an old CB callsign.

....previously KAF3877
Looks like I've got the oldest still active GMRS callsign listed so far (KAE9013, issued 12/1992). :D

The local REACT organization in my area (Nashua REACT Inc.) had KAD0610, issued in 1986. They let it expire in 2000 which also ended their grandfathered use of GMRS on 462.675.

Is it real?

WHAT$85 is my license! ( I guess you could sub the "$" for a 4, then it would read as WHAT485)
