• 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 am looking for a "walk-trough" on the KPG-25d software for the TK-940 (800mhz) Radio.

I have been trying to get it right for a while now, but to no avail.

Does anyone have a "Template" that I could look at, to make sure that I am getting all the right information in the right places.

Or know what fields must have data in them.
Repeater Info: Area Code: ???
Home repeater Number:???
System Name:???
ALT-Feature Option-Data: System:??? Group:???
Trnspnd: Yes/No
TlkArnd: Yes/No
Data: Yes/No

Does anyone have a programming manual I could look at?

Thank You,

ROB

This is more than three characters...

I am looking for a "walk-trough" on the KPG-25d software for the TK-940 (800mhz) Radio.

I have been trying to get it right for a while now, but to no avail.

Does anyone have a "Template" that I could look at, to make sure that I am getting all the right information in the right places. If you are just trying to set up a voice group on a LTR system, are your repeaters correct and in the proper order? Is the ID a valid one for the system? I could send an archive if you think that would help, but you really need to get all the proper parameters in the right spot. See below.

Or know what fields must have data in them.
Repeater Info: Area Code: ??? Required. Part of system info. Either a 1 or 0.
Home repeater Number:???Required. Part of system info. Range 1 to 20.
System Name:???Your choice. It's what shows on display.
ALT-Feature Option-Data: System:??? Group:???Leave blank. For sending data (like GPS).
Trnspnd: Yes/No Set as "no" unless you like weird beeping on the radio.
TlkArnd: Yes/No Set as "no". Used for direct car to car communications.
Data: Yes/No Set as "no" for voice communications.

Does anyone have a programming manual I could look at? Don't think there is one. Help files in the software is about all you're gonna get.

Thank You,

cabletech; copy that!

My crusty old laptop has a bad floppy and I cannot get any archives out of it. Also I do not have any 940 codeplugs, however I have plenty of 840 UHF ones. 840's are the same as 940's except on the 940 the repeater freqs are entered by the FCC channel numbers. Google for a pre-rebanded 800 MHz list.

Since I can't get a codeplug, I emailed you screen shots...
