• 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.

Wide-band VHF antenna for Waris?

Hi folks!
I was very surprised to find an HT1250 VHF with such an antenna...

I thought that antennas like this only fit JEDI and XTS radios, because it has a little hole in the center of connector and there are no such a hole in waris antennas.
So the question is: is it a special waris wide band antenna or it's just a JEDI antenna screwed into HT1250? If it is latter, is it possible to do it and does the antenna need any modifications to fit?

Thanks in advance!

I've never seen one of those antennas on a Waris so it's probably someone who doesn't know what they're doing. I hope they didn't ever transmit with it, that'd lead to very high SWR.

Jedi antenna

It is not possible to use the Jedi antennas on the waris radios because of the waris using an MX end on the antenna and the Jedi uses an SMA.
Does anyone know if a MTX8250/9250 has an SMA antenna ? If it does it would seem you could put an SMA on your waris VHF. Anyone have one of the MTX Waris portables to confirm what antenna they use as I have never owned one.

While that antenna will physically screw onto the top of the radio, it's a different connector as others have said and using it for any extended period like that will damage the radio.
