• 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 have a question regarding copy and paste inside of the PPS software. The question I got is I have several PPS Code Plugs that I have programmed for various departments within our county and the redundancy of having to re add Towersites, Radio IDs, and Talkgroups can be redundant. I’m wondering if there is a way of being able to copy/paste from one code plug to another.

Based on my understanding of these pagers and PPS, I don't see a way to amend multiple codeplugs with a single change common to all without manually changing each codeplug for each department. The Unications don't accept over-the-air programming like a subscriber radio with transmit capability, and even then, it may be department-specific.

Note that I have not used or experimented with import / export of data, but I would think this could be accomplished externally in a spreadsheet program, then imported into PPS.

If you're talking about creating new profiles for additional units, you could start with tab C2 ("Copy from the Existing Profile"), then tailor for the specific needs of the user. At least that'd let you start from a common base, and you wouldn't have to re-create everything from scratch.

If you're talking about updating the profiles once they're in use, there's not much you can do, really. You can import new talkgroups (but not subscriber IDs) from RR-style CSV files. I don't think you can use that to add sites to systems that you've already programmed, although I haven't tried.
