• 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.

Hi everyone!

We are testing the Man-down feature on our devices which are working in analog mode, it is working fine as expected but it is only showing the Primary ID of MDC systems which is not very helpful because it is difficult the remember person name of that particular Primary ID.

We are using direct communication for some channels (same frequency), and three repeaters (SLR5500) for three other channels.

We are wondering if it is possible to link the Primary ID with the Radio Alias so it shows the Radio Alias when the Man-down feature has been activated.

What radios and what software? Kind of hard to answer the question without this info.

Glad I can help. Motorola tends to make things like that more complicated than they should be.

Is there an option inside CPS2 or external software for contacts bulk upload, like importing the user information from a CSV file? it would things much easier in case we have many devices.

Unfortunately, no. On the bright side, you only have to build it once. After that you can copy paste as needed.
