• 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 am trying to program my Baofeng UV82 and i am using seperate TX frequencies by setting the Duplex to "Split" and then putting the TX Freq in the Offset column. This is right and it transfers to radio alright. However, when i save my file and open it back up, those offset TX Freq's now display as a numeric +/- Offset instead of the Frequency. Anyone have a solution?

It looks like the +/- offset is exact the previous input frequency..... i am just needing frequencies to stick, not the offset number.

works for me, just in the duplex put in a + or a - then in the off set column, calculate what your transmit frequency is, how much higher or lower from the receive frequency it should be.. I don't use split because of similar problems but this work around does work. Save to radio then bring up that frequency, assuming your tones are correct, you should be on frequency. Or go to the channel, then press *scan to go to reverse, with a frequency counter, or another radio, you should hear your transmit frequency. In case its an active frequency, go to your lowest power, maybe in your basement, to avoid getting into the repeater. Just somewhere to mask your signal.

It stores the offset, not the value. Is it incorrect?

yes you put a + or - in offset, then calculate the off set from the receive frequency. It works for me. I checked the transmit frequency and the radio reacts like it is suppose to.
