• 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:

Voice recording and long term effects on memory?

I've been spending more time in the Uniden forum with the SDS100 release and with all the discussions about flash memory and the limited number of write cycles on the memory, it got me thinking about the G4/G5 and if the voice storage functionality will eventually run into the same issues or if I'm needlessly worrying about a nonexistent problem?

Forgive me if this has been addressed before but I wasn't able to find anything on a cursory search of the topics in the subforum.

The Unidens use a SD card where the Unications do not.
But what kind of internal memory is in the Unication? Flash memory doesn't have to be packaged in an external card with contacts, it can also be soldered onto a PCB and still have the same write limitations/life expectancy.

This thread got me thinking, so I started looking at the "Voice Storage" setting in the PPS. If you look at tab D4 (Group ID Setting) there is a check box for Voice Storage. The help menu states:

Voice Storage
Definition
To start recording voice message when receive selective call from this ID.

Options
1. Uncheck: Do not record the voice call when receive this TGID's voice calls.
2. Check (Default): Record the voice call when receive this TGID's voice calls.

Then when you go to tab D5 (Zone & Channel Setting) you will see another checkbox for Voice Storage.

The help menu once again states:

Voice Storage
Definition
To start recording voice message when receive voice call from this ID.

Options
1. Uncheck: Do not record the voice call when receive this TGID's voice calls.
2. Check (Default): Record the voice call when receive this TGID's voice calls.

So my question is does one checkbox supersede the other?
