• 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.

Do UHF trunking tables apply for XTS-5000 CPS?

Just purchased a UHF XTS-5000 and am impatiently waiting it's arrival. I have the CPS, but no sample codeplug to play with until the radio gets here. I've programmed XTS-3000 radios for 800 MHz systems with no issues, and entering the control channels was all that was required. This will be my first foray into the UHF band. My question is: Do the custom frequency tables listed in the RR database apply in XTS-5000 UHF codeplugs, or do I simply enter the control channels and the radio will take care of the rest? Thanks in advance for your replies (and go easy on me lol)

You will need to enter in the trunking ranges for the radio to work properly.

The ranges listed on RadioReference are typically for scanners and will not work as Motorola trunking tables.

You'll probably need to use a program such as TRUNK88 and a spreadsheet to figure out the proper ranges.

Thanks for the reply, Mike. I downloaded Trunk88 and also Trunker and Unitrunker, just to try them out. In Unitrunker I see "LCN"s that kind of look like trunking channel numbers, and they seem to correlate with the frequencies used. I filled in the frequencies based on the frequencies the system uses, and it appears to match up. Can you elaborate a little or point me to a resource that will explain a little more in depth as to what this raw data means and how to turn it into the usable data I need. Thanks!
