• 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.

Cables and MOTOTRBO CPS from Motorola, and if you're programming wide band you need to take the wide band course and get an entitlement key from them as well.

PMKN4012B - Programming Cable, Portable - $77.00 (Also works on APX Portables)
HKVN4362 - Software,TRBO CPS Download Only - Current Version - $169.00 (Good for 3 years of updates)
HKVN4046A - 20/25 kHz BW LIC (MotoTRBO) - Free

If you are old-school and want a DVD mailed to your house, you can opt to buy the subscription using RVN5115AN (current as of 13 Aug 2017) at $399.00. It doesn't make sense to me to pay that much just to have a hard copy on DVD. It is the same CPS as the download.

As Crazyboy points out, you'll need to take the wideband course. It a silly little video that Motorola sets up via an online course. Once you complete the course (a few minutes), then the Motorola will have a copy of the certificate and they will allow you to search and add the wideband EID to your cart. They are free.
