• 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.

Hello I just purchased two baofeng uv-5re , can anyone tell me if I can disable transmitting on certain frequencies ? I enjoy listening to the public service frequencies but afraid to accidentally TX on them ?

I believe you can only disabe transmit for the whole radio. (UHF side and / or VHF side). The two that I have only do that. Not by channel. If you do not put a split in it it will xmit on the freq you are listening to.

if you have programming software what I do is just program 500.000 mhz on the transmit side that way the radio will either beep back at you or just say no TX on the display or something like that ....but I don't have a bofang so UNSURE if that will work......

If you are using CHIRP programming software the proper way to disable transmit is by setting the Duplex column to off. Setting a radio to transmit ousidet of its designed frequency range could cause problems.
