• 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:

G5 programming scenario

Can different trunking systems be assigned to the channel switch?

(as a way of switching while moving geographically between several systems, or, as a way of moving to & from various incidents on different systems?)

Or, must a system be assigned to a zone, which as I understand can only be navigated via menu.

In a G5 VHF/800 is this programming scenario possible, for example:
-switch pos 1: analog/conventional VHF paging channel
-switch pos 2: a VHF P25 trunking system talkgroup scanlist
-switch pos 3: an 800 P25 trunking system talkgroup scanlist
-switch pos 4: analog/conventional 800 tac channel scanlist

Thanks

Yes. I have several different trunked systems in one zone, and in some cases both conventional and trunked.

Yes you can., I have about 5 different systems in my first zone, some 800 trunking (of different systems), some VHF analog.
Each switch position is independent of the other positions.

The only thing a little odd about the conventional scan is that the scan is from another set of channel positions (in any zone). So I what I did is made a couple of zones at the end that contain the channels I want to scan, and then set that list within a position in zone 1. This does NOT apply to trunked scan...that's easier. (I could be missing something so if someone knows otherwise for conventional channels, please say so!)
