• 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.
  • Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I've been in Atlanta this week on business and brought my G5 with me, since the city of Atlanta is on a P25 simulcast system it seemed like the perfect receiver to bring.

Has anyone else successfully been able to monitor this system with their G5? I've tried the entire week and the G5 will not lock on to any control channel. I'm perfectly open to the possibility it's a programming issue but I have tried just about every configuration possible, including putting every single frequency in for the system. I've also verified the system ID and WACN with my Whistler scanner using pro96comm so I am pretty certain all those settings are correct.

I'm able to monitor a neighboring P25 system without any problems (Cobb County).

Looking at the Data Base here, you should have no problem. Be sure your RFSS is (4) and Site is (1).
Double check Site ID and WACN.
Should only need the 4 CCs and at least one TG, then set monitor mode to on and you should be good to go. Add TGs as necessary. I would think that would be a very active system.

Ah, I bet it was the site configuration, I forgot about that. I'm back at home now so I really can't test, but I'm sure that was it.
