• 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.

Handhelds wont talk to different model

Hi there
A while ago brought some Motorola T9550 radios.. finally got around to using them, and they won't work with our older Motorola radios which I think are SX700s
I have checked all settings and made sure the privacy on the SX700 is turned off, but they won't communicate together at all.
Have spent HRS trying to get it sorted.
The SX700 will talk to other branded radios, Unidens etc, so I'm presuming the issue is with the T9550
I'm sure we're overlooking something.

Thanks in advance

Matt

I would think that if they were using the same mode, frequency, and 'tones' if any, that they would at least be heard by your other radios. If not, then I have to suspect that one of those things was set wrong.

I know nothing about Ham - if this is in the wrong section, then please move it to the right one.
I though being a big radio site I may get some help..

I've spend HOURS with these radios.
Gone through every channel and setting and no go with others.
Its like UHF and VHF almost

Aren't we supposed to use this site to help each other out and not criticize. A simple "Sorry but this isn't the correct thread or section for this topic. Possibly the Motorola section would be better" would have sufficed.
