Default IC-F5021 MDC Programming

I just purchased 71 F5021s for work. My boss wants me to program the MDC functions (PTT-ID, Stun, etc). I have read the manual, service manual and help files. I cannot get enough information from these sources to even start. The information is geared toward using the features, not setting them up. No problem with the standard programming, just the MDC. I called Icom Tech Support and they were supposed to email me some information specific to MDC programming, but the never did. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

Thanks for your help

Go into the program help files and you will find a section on MDC.

Thanks, the help files are t enough to even get started. Icom finally emailed me the MDC manual. It is 36 pages and very detailed. I got it setup easily with this.

Hey Icom...
If you have to create a 36 page manual on how to program MDC, it might be time to create better programming software.

I would love a copy of this MDC manual as well . (rick_kay AT hotmail DOT com ).

The F5021 is somewhat limited in MDC capabilities. It will receive some of them, but cant initiate much.

You can get it to do PTT-ID though, but there is only room to enter 5 units in the Alias Table. I guess you could have a different configuration file for each radio to get 71 unique ID's though.

You guys get the MDC manual through a PM? If not, it can be found here:

Thanks for your help
You bough 71 radios and you are not getting support for your dealer? Amazing.
