• 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 can't believe the prices. So cheap! I'll buy one and give it a shot.
NONE of the Wouxun or Baofeng radios support 2-tone, which quick-call 2 is also known as. You can try the Puxing px-777 PLUS The "PLUS" is important... as the regular 777 does not support 2tone

I'd love to hear an update on the Anytone. They have a C model which does dual receive and cross band repeat, which looks very interesting.

The Anytone and the PowerWerx mobiles (same thing--different panel) mobiles will both send and alert for 2 and 5 tones. As far as the sending goes, you can program one of the mic function buttons to send it. Using this scheme for our EMA pagers and warning sirens. Can't comment on cross-band repeat for amateur use. I don't see the utility in it so I've never tried it.

Puxing PX-888 "D" model has two-tone encode / decode and works well.
Also Anytone 3318-UVA and TYT-THUV8 are both dual band VHF / UHF handheld transceivers with two-tone encode / decode
