• 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.

Just got my G4 and I'm programming it. I'd like to know why I hear this high pitch whine when listening to some talk groups. Specifically, this happens when changing knob positions. Even though I might have the same talk group in another knob position, when I do change to another knob position, where this talk group is by itself, it does that whining sound. It comes on and after awhile, the voice comes thru.

I had the same problem or at least it sounds the same when I updated to the latest FW release. It was random. I reverted back to the prior FW and never heard it again. Did the problem go away or did you come up with a fix?

When I first noticed this noise, it was random. It wasn't doing it on all knob positions or zones. I printed out a report, and started looking for differences. I found mine in the group ID setting. Look at the column labeled "Alert Tone", make sure they're all set to "None". Of course, this is only appropriate if you don't want to hear any alert tones when that particular talk group comes on. Even if you did, I found it intrusive because while the tone is going on, it cuts out the voice. Hope this helped.
