• 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.

I've searched high and low and can't seem to find a replacement fan
for my XPR8400. I've looked at the San Ace website and my part number,
9G1212P1G061 is no longer available. The original fan is 12vdc .83amp.
Imagine my frustration when I found a brand new fan, (the same exact size)
that would be perfect for my XPR, but it's 120vac.

Does anybody have any suggestions as to which fan would be best as a
Original fan: San Ace 12vdc 0.83amp
Part Number: 9G1212P1G061
Size: 119mm x 38mm
Wiring: 4 wires with 2x2 square either ATX or EPS type connector (not sure which)

Locally there’s a store [Marlin P Jones] that sells electronic goodies, & they have plenty of fans. A few times I try to match up a fan I have from their internet page. Trying to cross reference fan numbers never works. But 100% of the time, when I walk into the shop with my fan, the guy gives me the exact match. So bring your fan into the store.

Not too long ago I was able to find the exact PN replacement new one on ebay shipped from China. You need to make sure the fan you get has the build in speed control (has 4 wires), otherwise it will be whooshing at full speed at all times. Extra noise, wear and tear plus dust will accumulate quickly inside the repeater. Been there done that.
