• 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.

My HT1000/MT2000 just give the simple beeps, nothing programmable. Never been unlucky enough to own a HT1250.

also , for keyups , are any of these available for either radio ? ( HT1000 HT1250 )


The HT1000 and HT1250 can do MDC1200 tones, either before of after the transmission.

The HT1000 can also do the faked "talk permit tone". It sounds pretty close to a radio krying up on a trunked radio system.

I have it setup on my HT1000 so if I have several RX only channels, I can set one to TX on a MURS channel with the fake talk permit tone to let me know what CH position I am on without looking. As an example....

Ch1 city A police (fake talk permit tone)
Ch2 city A fire No TX (bonk)
Ch3 city A EMS No TX (bonk)
Ch4 city B police (fake talk permit tone)
Ch5 city B fire No TX (bonk)
Ch6 city B EMS No TX (bonk)

So if I want to hear city B fire, I can just turn the knob until I get the first "bonk" after the 2nd "fake talk permit tone".

Sorta gay, sorta silly, but so is what most of what we do with radios :lol:
