• 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.

Do you want only one page channel for both department for two different channels?
Also do you want the audio to be muted until a page is received?

With the software I have (CE59 for VX829) I need to enter the decode tones and options under Signalling -> 2-Tone Decode

Tones are dropped through one feq. but as long as I can get them both to be able to be paged I don't care which. and no I must be able to keep the audio on so the Firefighter can here what the call is.

Fire F1 is the main Channel both Fire depts are toned/paged out on, and operates on as well.
Channel's 15 & 16 is the paging Channels for both depts on this radio. Firefighter is wanting to be able to be paged out for either department with out having to have it in that departments paging channel. or with out having to have the radio on the main Fire F1 channel all the time.

Program I am using is CE86
