• 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.

How do you set the transmit power limit on a Kenwood NX 700? The dealer told me to set it using test mode but I feel like that does nothing. If that is the way to do it can someone explain how its done? Also if its done another way could someone help in explaining how to go about doing so?

So, are you trying to decrease the transmitter power output?

You can do this on a channel by channel basis with the programming software. Doing it radio wide can be done, but you really should do it while on a service monitor as some radios can start to get a little weird if you lower the power too much.

When you program the radio, just set the channels to low power, that's much easier.

I know that I mean that right now the Low Power Transmit limit is set for around 3 watts from the factory... The High Power Transmit Limit is set for about 28 watts. I want to be able to take the Low Power Transmit Limit and set it to be 10 watts radio wide so that every channel that is programmed to have low power will transmit at 10 watts.
