• 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 wish to program one set of frequencies to display A and another to Display B. Both sets of frequencies are for amateur repeaters I use in different areas. In CHIRP, I have saved the 2 sets of frequencies, however when I "upload to radio", (programming cable), I am unable to upload one set of frequencies to Display A and the other set of frequencies to display B. I end up with the same saved set of frequencies in both A & B displays.Perhaps this is not possible?? Any suggestions, including a link to a current manual/guide explaining how to do this would be appreciated. Thanks

Non of the Chinese radios I have had (5 radios, 3 brands) will do what you want. Some will not even due true dual band monitoring.

The two displays share the same 128 memory channels that can't be divided into banks. What you want to do is not possible on that radio.

I may be missing something and not completely understand what you want to do. How many frequency pairs do you desire to program into the radio all together. I'm thinking there are not more than 60 frequency pairs for repeaters in each area - but of course I could be wrong.

I would program the frequency pairs for the first area into channels 1- 60 and then the frequency pairs for the second area into channels 61 - 120 then by using the a/b switch you could select a channel from each area. I actually do this to split my radio between New Jersey and Florida frequencies I use.


You cannot double the capacity of the radio by loading frequencies into the a and the b banks.
