• 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.

Good Morning, If this is the wrong place to ask the following I am very sorry. The company I work for has LTR System 8 channels in use with 22 talkgroups. Talk group A is always getting bleed over from another talk group,and another site close to our location. The main control tac for group A is a console for also monitoring the other groups. The repeater gets hot and we have to chage to the secondary channel causing extra traffic on the secondary channel. The radios being used are Motrola MTXB250-LS.
We have been given the ok to buy new smaller (pocket size) radios to solve this problem. The guy in charge of this project is not talking to anyone but the company TECHs, whom I am of the opinion haven't fixed this problem in the last 5 years, why all of a sudden is a new radio going to solve the problem.
While I will have nothing to gain by obtaining good information, I have to put up with the present radio system, which at times is dangerous to the personnel in group A. Any suggestions you can give as to what I may be able to put my .02 cents worth into this project is greatly appreciated.If you would rather reply to my e-mail that's ok as I am listed
