• 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 cannot get these variables to save even though the system says Confirm.

Thoughts?

If you're trying to do this from the keypad, I believe that the Baofeng radios are not able to make changes to a memory channel from the keyboard. You must delete the original channel and re-enter it in order to make any such changes.

One of many oddities of chinese radios in general.

Turn the radio on

GO to menu item #40 and RESET the radio
Menu item #14 for either English voice or Voice OFF
Press EXIT on the keypad
Push orange VFO/MR button to go to Frequency mode and program in repeater frequency
Press MENU then push #1 for frequency stepping. 10K for ham repeater use.
Push #13 for CTCSS on transmit for repeater use.
Push #25 for repeater shift. Options are NEG(-) POS(+) or off for simplex
Item #26 for off shift repeater use. You want 00.600 for ham radio repeaters.
Go to item #27 to program in Memory channel
Push EXIT to go to frequency mode again
Program in Repeater INPUT frequency
Push Menu then 27 for Memory channels
save as same channel as repeater output.
See isn't that simple ?

It's best to use the 2.5K or 5.0K settings.
If he is trying to enter a 15 or 25 kHz spaced channel like 147.015 or 444.025 then he won't be able to if the step is set to 10.0K.
Item #26 for off shift repeater use. You want 00.600 for ham radio repeaters.
This is only for standard offset repeaters in the 2 meter band.
The best thing to do is ignore the offset unless you plan on operating in frequency mode (VFO) and program the transmit and recieve frequenices separately.

If you want to learn how to do it correctly I would suggest reading about it at the miklor.com web site I posted previously.
