• 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.

you cannot delete the last personality. Provided the radio has been hit with an ASK, you can just delete all references to the personality in your zone/channel screens.

Just ignore it. It isn't hurting anything by being there.

If you took the time to do a search on this topic, you would have found there have been numerous responses to your question on the Internet.

Bottom line is you can't delete the trunking personality out of the radio without some serious hacking.

You also provided zero information about the radio as to at a minimum of even what band it is on. You know it would help in getting the correct information to your question if you just slowed down and did some first level thinking before posting your questions. You would be surprised just how much more help you get in return by providing the details about the radio. Don't need the serial number, but the model number is the first thing to start with.

Think of it this way. You take your car or truck to a service shop and ask them to fix your vehicle. The first question out of their mouth will be what is it doing or not doing?

Not trying to give you a hard time, but take a step back, take a deep breadth, engage the brain before opening the mouth.

what i usually do to remove trunking is to add a new trunk system which comes up 001 and delete the others. thats how a radio looks with a blank trunk system in it.
