• 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.

HT1000 connected to RTX-4005B Internal Speaker Not Muting

Hi all,

I'm attempting to align an HT-1000 and I'm finding that when I have the RKN-4035D cable connected to the HT-1000 and to the RTX-4005B box that the internal speaker on the radio is not muting as it should. I've tried 5 different radios and it is the same on all so I'm guessing it's an issue with either the cable (which seems rather unlikely given that all other functionality works) or the RTX-4005B.

Does anyone know exactly what triggers the HT-1000 to mute the internal audio when connected to an external speaker (i.e. - either a speaker mic or the RTX-4005b)? If I knew that I have a feeling I might be better able to track down the issue.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Chris

On the test set MT is the correct Audio Out switch position, Audio on the Meter switch.

Thanks,those are the settings I'm using and I'm getting audio out of the 4005B (if I select the speaker) but I'm also still getting audio out of the internal speaker on the radio. So I'm wondering what, electronically, might trigger the internal speaker to mute as I'm guessing whatever that trigger is in the 4005B might be bad.

Thanks,

Chris

A speaker mic grounds Opt Select 1 which I believe will kill the internal speaker. Check to see if the test box is grounding pin 1.

Thanks ramal121 that was very helpful!

After looking through the schematic for the RTX-4005B with that information I was able to determine that in order to properly perform the rated audio test (and all of the audio tests) that the "MT PL" switch needs to be set to "ON", flipping this switch to "ON" grounds Pin 1 (of the Universal connector) which disables the internal speaker of the HT-1000. With that disabled I was able to easily calibrate the audio to the required 3.74Vrms.

Thanks again!

Chris
