• 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.

Fleetsync GPS Poll ACK Error

Good evening,

I'm working on implementing Fleetsync AVL and I cannot get a GPS equipped radio to ACK properly on a repeated channel. I can manually transmit position (EOT PTT ID / GPS) and it works properly. If I poll the radio simplex, it works properly. Just not via a repeater.

I've increased the maximum ack wait time to 3s, increased transmit delay time to half a second.

I don't know what I'm missing. Has anyone ran into this before?


(Test portable is a TK-5210G w/ KMC-38GPS, base is an NX700H).

Thanks
J

My issue was poor signal strength combined with a longer squelch tail due to low signal strength. The signal was strong (but noisy) enough for the EOT PTT position ID to make it through, but not enough to allow polling. Moving the portable to a different location using same repeater worked perfectly.

Now to integrate EMDC and Fleetsync onto the same system...
