• 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 searched for this issue in the forums and cannot find anything on this issue. The issue I am having is I programmed the pager with Philadelphia P25 frequencies. When I turn the pager on and the talk groups are currently silent meaning no traffic the screen will show RFSS/Site 1/3 and only 2 talk groups will be received. If I turn the pager off and turn it back on and there is traffic on one of the talk groups, the screen will show RFSS/Site: 1/4 and I will receive all of the programmed talk groups. I only have the control and alternate frequencies programmed and I unchecked site trunking. I appreciate any help I can get.



I might be completely clueless! =)

According to a forum search, Philadelphia FD and municipal services are exclusively found on Zone 1 (RFSS/Site 1/3), while Philadelphia PD is exclusively found on Zone 2 (RFSS/Site 1/4).

If this is the case, then you will need to split the sites into separate systems in order to force the G5 to use a specific site. This means you will need to specify only one site per system and only program the specific control channels for each site.
