• 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.

would like some suggestions if possible on what this might be. My BC780 seems to be deaf on all trunked freqs. I have 4 Trunked systems on my 780. All it does is scream thru the feqs and never locks onto a control channel. All the conventional stuff works fine. I have had it hooked up to 2 diff. antennas to test this. One being a radio shack mag mount inside my place here the other being a ground plane outside on my deck. With the conventional freqs I'm pulling stuff well over 60+ miles away easily.The trunking freqs are right within a few miles from my location. My Pro-97's have no issue scanning them at all, using a RS 800mhz duckie. I have programmed and re-programmed the freqs. I can't figure this out for the life of me. All the obvious stuff i have checked on the scanner, so i ask for help from you out ther now please. Could it be something in the trunking capabilities is broken? God I hope not. Just seems odd that 4 different trunked systems will not come in at all.
