• 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.

I have a MRK SYS and a 500m. In my programmer i did not enable the emer aduio or emer disp options, how ever i still recieve the emer tone/beep and emer disp *TRXEMER* when one of our channels goes to restricted traffic(which is what i want). Does the enabling and diabling even matter, or can dispatch over ride this feature from thier consoles? Second, is the emergancy tone/beep the same on all radios or does it vary(not the individual fire tones)? Third, what is the recieve to transmit frequency equation? Fourth and final, why are LIDS 16383-16392 reserved and should not be used(according to ProGrammer help)?

I can answer some. A console can always premp a radio. I believe the radio transmit is 45 mhz lower than it's recieve. Those lids are wildcards that are assigned by the CSD or IMC(MOM) or VIDA when a lid is unknown. I am still learning about the signalling that occurs during an EMERGENCY. i hope this helps some.

From the help screens of programmer:

Emergency Audio

This control enables or disables audio during an emergency transmission.
When this control is enabled, audio is not affected during an emergency transmission.

When this control is disabled, all audio (voice, alert tones, etc.) is muted during an emergency transmission. This feature is used in conjunction with the Emergency Display control to prevent emergency annunciation at the radio. Once the user presses the PTT button the radio display and audio returns to normal. On some radio types the audio and display will also update and return to normal if the user presses the System/Group buttons.



Emergency Display

This control enables or disables changes to the display during an emergency transmission.

The radio display is not affected during an emergency transmission.

The radio display will not change or update during an emergency transmission. This feature is used in conjunction with the Emergency Audio control to prevent emergency annunciation at the radio. Once the user presses the PTT button the radio display and audio returns to normal.

The dispatcher can pre-empt your tarnsmission but they can not override the way your radio behaves when it receives an emergency.

Unless you are in an Extended Addressing EDACS System, 16383 is the highest LID available. 16383 is reserved for system use. 16383 is the wildcard LID as the other poster said. If 16383 is valid on all sites (provided they are equipped with a Site Controller or SIM & Site Pro) then a radio with any LID can talk on the system. If it is not valid, then the LID must be in the CSD database (which is uploaded to each site) in order to talk.
