• 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.

San antonio texas has a Edacs Radio System

My question the (WA SCAN) booting from site
lowest site to highest site this is the lockon sequence
this means in san antonio sites load in the order
outline tower first Then Primary Tower Sites Listed Below

013 (D) Cagnon (Outline Tower)
014 (E) Grey Forest (Outline Tower)
015 (F) Hill Country (Outline Tower)
016 (10) American Tower (Outline Tower)
017 (11) Topperwein (Outline Tower)
018 (12) Hallmark (Outline Tower)
021 (15) BLUE Simulcast (Primary Site)
022 (16) GOLD Simulcast (Primary Site)

??? (??) Scat Site (Mobile Emergency Site)

I have noted more talkgroups active on the (Outline Towers)
due to WA SCAN booting also the PRO-107 loads the tower in this order
is this correct the old config was sites 1-8 1-Blue/2-Gold/3-Cag/4-Gry/5-Hil/6-Amt/7-Top/8-Hm
this whould load the primary site first now it looks like the (Outline Tower) boot first

I'm sorry - I really haven't any idea what you are asking, so I'm going to take a guess - since this is the Harris forum you are trying to work out the order that a radio checks the WA SCAN list? If so, it's the order that it is listed in the box in RPM (at least the first time the radio turns on). After that, it starts where it left off the last time.

In the case of the San Antonio system, most traffic is steered to the central blue and gold simulcast sites, since they have lots of capacity and cover the most area. The outlier sites are there to provide fill-in coverage, and carry much more limited traffic.
