• 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.

I've been monitoring usage of the 700 air to ground frequencies in my area.

I decided to add more 700 AG and interop frequencies to my G4.

The method/steps used to add frequencies that are P25C seems cumbersome/convoluted -

  • add a conventional record - label (i.e. 7AG60), frequency and BW
  • create a P25C TG row (label '7AG60' repeated and TG 1)
  • create a "Monitor Mode" zone/position for each frequency (set to P25 conventional and assign at least one TG)

Then, if I want to scan a group of things, put each of that those items into another zone/position as "Normal Scan"...

To simplify things, I test CSQ entries for the AG frequencies and listened this morning. It looks like if I park on 7AG60 (CSQ) all I get is digital noise.

I'm wondering if there is a better way -- thoughts?

That pretty much sums it up. You can scan up to 16 channels, but would have to make two zones with each of those channels in a separate knob position (16 knob positions just for the channels). Then another zone which would scan those channels and set up which channels you want to scan. Unfortunately no other way. Not really friendly for scanning multiple conventional channels.
