• 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:

hello,

I have the Tait TP9100 series radio and when I press the PTT button I get the PTT sidetone to indicate the MDC1200 burst. What I have realized is that the PTT side tone is going off before the radio sends the MDC data burst so I am actually talking or trying to talk over the data burst.

Contacted the dealer and they didn't seem to know if the PTT sidetone can be delayed. Anyone know any possible solutions?

thanks

The side tone and the mdc burst are supposed to coincide so if that
is not happening then most likely its:

1 - a programming omission or error

or

2 - something is wrong with the radio that requires repair

When you say Ptt sidetone, do you mean the 3 or 4 quick beeps which is the Proceed To Talk tone?

I am not sure what to do with this radio because I have to wait after I hear the beeps and guess when the MDC has been sent. In a stressful call I can't be guessing if the MDC has been sent yet.

It sounds like you do not actually have the ANI Sidetone enabled. Have them go to, Channel Profiles > Analog > PTT Signaling TAB > In the Settings Box, Check the Audible Sidetone.Also if you want it so ID each and every time set the ANI suppression time to " 0 " (Zero). This is the amount time the radio will wait after it last send out the ANI before sending it out. This is a cool option. Also the MDC1200 Side tone is the actual MDC1200 Burst.
