• 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.

Hello everyone, I am new here. I am stuck and looking for anyone who can help me out.

I affectionately have a GP 68 which I use for duty. I want to program a DTMF ANI that sounds similar to those used by law enforcement or firefighters. A sample of that sound is repeated many times in the following clip for your reference:

YouTube - Officer Needs Help (Radio Transmission)


I understand that the GP 68 has a PTT ID system already integrated with it, but I want the specific sound from above. Also, is there any way to program the GP 68 to give the DTMF ANI at the end of the transmission instead of the beginning?

Any help is greatly appreciated, and please let me know if you need me to clarify anything. thanks in advance!

Sorry you can't. The ID'ing you are hearing on the You Tube clip sounds like MDC 1200 and IS NOTHING like DTMF and there is no way your going to make DTMF sound anything like what it is. Get your self a REAL Moto radio, Ht-1000 or such. GP-68 is just a cheap Moto Asian market radio. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. unfortunately, I am not able to get a better, high powered radio. I am constrained to a max of 1-watt transmitting power due to interference with on station sensitive equipment. I know the GP 68 can go to 1.5-watts, but I only operate in .5 mode. It was a good platform for the money, and I am trying to integrate it with the current DTMF system we have.

I am an amateur as far as knowledge of the current market, but can you recommend any platforms that can fit this constraint? Thanks for the help!
