• 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 Part?

I have a quick question. I work for NAPA, here in Kansas City. In our vehicles (as well as our store) we have an IG (FCC Database lists it under service -- the call is WPVV748) Radio. I was wondering what FCC Parts it is listed under. Being an Amateur Radio operator, for the most part I tend to keep to "Part 97" as my guidelines. I was wondering, however, what are the "rules" that govern that part? Is it Part 90, 95, or is there another that states the rules for licensed business pool radios? I already have "trained" (or at least tired) to teach them some of the things not to do, like cussing, and treating it like a CB <groan>.

Thanks

That service and those frequencies are regulated under the Part 90 rules.

If you look up the license at http://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchAdvanced.jsp

You will see a line that says:
Eligibility
90.35a1 - Applicant is in the business of auto parts distribution center. Radios will be used to coordinate personnel and activities

Part 95 is the "Personal Radio Services" which includes Citizens Band, MURS, GMRS, FRS and a few others.
