• 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.

We are using channel 2 and the ctcss is on 11 what do I need to set my t-ctcs to so I can talk to the dewalt radios

Are you using CHIRP to program the radios? Ctcss tones only go down to 67.0. You need to find out that tone your work radios are set to inorder for them to hear you.

The more people illegally using radios the more problems will be caused and the sooner something will be done about it.
Well that's true, but if it's Frs that gets scrapped, then are we really losing anything? Anyway that's enough of that so we don't get sidetracked from the op's question.

You can't change tones on an existing memory channel. You have to delete the channel and start over.
Ok so have to change it in Chirp and reprogram the radio ?

Frs that gets scrapped


FRS Radio won't get scrapped.

You will just have to use this service as intended with approved radios with non-removable antennas with proper emissions power and bandwidth.

Going forward that is what the OP should doing instead trying to enter the frequencies into not a FRS Radio.

People are doing a lot to harm to this service by just programming FRS frequencies in any non-approved radios and thinking it is ok.
