• 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.

Anyone know what this digital sound is?

This is on a conventional repeater with a PL of 110.9 on 154.875 MHz in Polk County Oregon. I don't know what the input to the repeater is because it is rarely used by the county Sheriff. I checked the FCC records and there is no digital emission mode registered for the frequencies licensed to the Polk Sheriff Dept.
Thanks foir any help.

Sounds like a weak digital signal of some sort. Might be from another law enforcement agency?

The sound clip is too short. But it almost sounded like the old MDC4800 Mobile Data Terminals.
That could be it. There was a similar sound during the transmission, but it wasn't caught by the PC scan recorder program. It is very intermittent so it could be getting into the repeater through ducting. The CAD/MDT system for the Sheriff is on the 800 MHz band so I doubt if it is one of those data terminals.

These are digital radio communications sound clips aquired from a restricted website, so be careful.
