• 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 have an XTS5000 that when I attach the KVL 3000+ cable (OEM) to the radio it will not enter the keyloading mode. I have tried to switch the housing with a working one and it didn't work. The contacts on the radio seem fine and I can read and write to the radio. I ended up having to switch the encryption module with one already programmed. Has anyone come across this before? Any fix?

My first thought is did you verify that the encryption is a feature in that specific radio? Once you used the already programmed radio, did it work?

Yes. the radios have the same encryption algo's and same flash. I was playing with the cable and it appears that the cable wasn't making good contact to the radio. I was able to test before my KVL battery died.

Also make sure that your secure setting are set to hardware encryption. If the radio has ADP selected under the secure tab it will not allow you to load keys properly.

That's a great point that I didn't think of. I wiped the radios because I'm doing testing with tactical OTAR. I forgot about setting it back to hardware.
