• 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:

Long time lurker here, appreciate the advice you guys give and have learned a lot from you guys. Now I finally have a problem.

I have 2 QuickCall tone groups programmed, I can only get the first tone group to activate, not the second. Yes I have double checked that the tones are correct, If I reverse the last 2 tones to the first group, now they'll work, but not the original one which did. Any suggestions?

When you say "two QC tone groups programmed," do you mean that you have programmed two channels, each with one QC programmed, and you are scanning between the two? If so, your problem is that QC does not usually record if the radio is scanning.

If you want to program a channel to respond to either of two QC tone pairs, program the QC type as A-B, C-D.

I have one channel programmed with 2 tone pairs (AB & CD). The radio will only activate with the pair on AB, not CD. And the problem is not in the tones because if I transverse the 2 (CD-AB & AB-CD) the former AB will not work and the former CD now will.

I was wondering if I'm missing a setting somewhere where you can turn off certain groups or whatnot.

Is your Quick Call Type set to Individual Call, Long Tone B, or Dual call?
If it's set to Individual Call, only the A-B group will activate.
If it's set to Dual Call, the A-B and C-D group will activate. (This is the one you want to set it to.)
Long Tone B will activate either a single tone in the 'B' spot OR the A-B group.

Try to set the Quick Call Type, to Dual Call.
Hope this helps.
