• 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.

Will Uniden be able to help me?

I have a pro505xl cb and it looks like the back antenna connection is loose. It really screws up the reception and the number of watts displayed on screen. In order to get reception, I have to jiggle it upwards to display watts.

In the owners manual it clearly says it the warranty that I they will only repair manufacturing defects. Does this mean I have a problem and can't send It two them under my warranty? Or will I have to pay some flat rate repair price?


Very confusing wording in the manual

I'd call them. sounds like a manufacturing defect to me. It isn't displaying watts, unless the connection to the antenna is made.

So Far Away....
Open the unit up,Take a look at the connector,see if its a bad solder.

Chances are you can do the repair yourself.the ant connector is a very
simple connection.the ground go's to the chassis,and the center pin will
attach to the board inside..
