• 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.

Okay so you have a dual channel minitor v the question problem is when you get back to back alerts on each channel the other channel wont alert. so lets say you have channel one ems and channel two fire the fire pages out on channel two you get the alert then a second later with (red light still on) ems gets alerted on channel one but since you already recieved an alert the ems channel wont kick off is this normal or is there a fix or does the pager have to be reset to get another alert on the oppsite channel?

When we set up pagers with two frequencies, we usually set the D position to be "Priority Scan F1". This means the pager will scan both frequencies, with F1 as the priority channel. When the pager stops on F2, you can hear a "pulsing" in the audio, this means the pager is checking F1 for any activity. If there is, the pager will immediately revert back to F1. Because of the priority, any tones heard on F2 will be interrupted, thus not allowing the pager to fully decode the tones. If you need the pager to be 100 percent reliable to alert on F1, then it must be set this way. If you do not care about missing pages, then have the pager reprogrammed for normal scan.
