• 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'm trying to find where in the programming software this option is. I'm sure it's sitting right in front of me but I can't seem to find it. I want to change the sound that is played when an alert is received but I can't seem to find the setting for it. Loads of sounds in the software but I'm unable to use any of them other than the default two beeps.

Thank you in advance!

There are no other alert sounds for QCII on analog with the XTS or APX series. Two lame, soft beeps is all you get.

The Digital Tone Signaling feature for the APX (QCII over P25) does allow you to change alert tones. It basically mimics a Minitor V/VI in that regard, and the alerting is actually effective.

Why they didn't bother to enhance QCII over analog at the same time is beyond me.

Look under Radio Ergonomics then Tone Signaling. You have have 10 different tones to choose from.

Those only apply to Digital Tone Signaling, not analog QCII.

Additionally, Digital Tone Signaling QA09000 is a feature that must be purchased, it's not an included standard feature in the APX series.

Newer firmware has added a Tone Signaling Singletone option as a standard feature, but not QCII.
