Icom Programming Software Guide

As of April 1, 2022 Icom will no longer allow us to sell software and cables over the internet.

We can program your radios when you place an order. However, we recognize that many of our customers do not wish to have dealers program their radios. And if you are located in a rural area your nearest dealer may be 100s of miles away.  If you require software or cables you will need to call us.

We believe Icom radios represent good quality products at a fair value. However, if you are looking for business radios (Part 90 approved) where you can easily program the radios yourself, you might consider the following other radios we carry:

Motorola Business Radios (models beginning with CLP. CLS, RM, RD):

These radios have pre-stored business frequencies (Part 90). Software to program these radios is available for free on the Motorola website. Just go to the product page for the radio and you can download the software. We can sell you the cable. Custom frequencies will require dealer programming.

Motorola Commercial Radios (models beginning with CP, CM, MagOne):

Software to program these can be purchased directly from Motorola. We can sell you the cable.

Kenwood ProTalk Business Radios (all models):

These radios have pre-stored business frequencies (Part 90). You can easily program these radios through the menu by following the instructions in the User Manual. Custom frequencies will require dealer programming.

Connect Systems Commercial Radios (all models):

Software and cables to program these can be purchased through us.

Warning   Business radios that have pre-stored frequencies still required an FCC license to operate. Be advised, serious penalties and prosecution can result from the unlicensed transmission on frequencies and equipment which require a license. Land Mobile Radios (LMR) require an FCC license to operate.  Need help? Let us do the work... FCC Licensing Help


Icom Software Guide

Icom programming software allows users to set frequencies and functions within their Icom radios.  Also know as Icom Cloning Software, this software runs on your PC under the Windows Operating System. You can:

  • set each channel's frequency and privacy codes
  • set functions for each programmable key
  • set parameters such as the Time-Out-Timer, and other functions
  • save the settings and program multiple radios

You may download your software immediately after ordering.

  1. You can find installation instructions here (click this link).
  2. To find programming guides and tutorials go to that software's product page, look under the "Downloads" tab.
