• 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.

Hi
Just got the G5, can anyone help me with the setup of programming a conventional analog frequency in a zone using a PL tone
and the channel has units using mdc1200
I have put P35 systems in it without any problems! Don’t see a conventional tab in PPS?
Thanks gang!

First, create the conventional frequencies on tab D2. Then create a knob position on tab D5. Receiving mode "Normal Mode", select your Conventional Frequency, Protocol Setting "CSQ", Squelch type "CTCSS". If you want to do something with the MDC1200 data, that will be a bit more involved.

Thanks N6ML!
This is a new toy for me as I’m so used to scanner and motorola programming..
Lastly,
Will the conventional alias show up on the screw when there is reception ?
The conventional alpha tag I assigned ?

No, but if you're using a "Monitor Mode" knob position, you'll only be receiving one frequency anyway. If you setup scanning across multiple conventional systems, the screen will show the alias for the knob position that it "lands on". I think the frequency alias is only used for programming.
