• 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.

Hytera PD362 Reception Problem

I just received my Hytera PD362 and it seems like a great little DMR HT Transceiver. The only issue I'm having with it is the reception on digital is dropping every 1-2 secs despite my MD380 maintain constant reception from my openspot. I've adjusted the squelch settings but they don't seem to make a difference. I can't seem to figure this one out.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated,

The fixed negative gain antenna on that radio isn't going to help you.

That radio is designed for on site communication or for use if you're close to a repeater.

I used to own several PD362 radios and they worked great. I eventually sold them because I very quickly outgrew them and they have no ENC capability. I've owned some PD782G radios and recently replaced them with PD982 radios. I found the PD362 received every bit as good as my PD782G radios did for the most part.

Could the DMR transmitter that you're trying to listen to is slightly out of alignment? I've run into this when trying to listen to some P25 stuff on a P25 commercial radio. The "real" P25 radio wouldn't decode yet my P25 capable RadioShack scanner always decoded perfectly fine. The P25 transmitter in question has since been replaced and the problem went away.

The squelch adjustment in the Hytera CPS has no effect on digital operation. The squelch adjustment only applies to analog operation. On analog I recall the factory default setting is 3 on a scale of 0 (open) to 9 (tight). For analog operation I found the default of 3 to be a bit tight for my tastes and a setting of 1 (min) works best. I use a squelch setting of 1 on all of my Hytera radios including an RD982U-1 repeater on the 440 ham band.

Good luck.

I have a few of the hytera PD362 radios. Make sure it has latest firmware and software upgrades. I find my new PD362 radios hold the boston DMR machine better. Granted they do perform better when close to the repeater. Vertex Standard EVXS-24 radios are good too.

Pd365/362 dropout in dmr mode

Hey John, I have a PD365 400-440Mhz with upgraded firmware to PD362. I have the same problem and don't
see any CPS software settings that would fix the problem. Nothing to do with the antenna. I run mine with an DV4mini so there is more than enough signal. I've adjusted dongle power up and down with no improvement. Network conditions have a greater effect. When my MD380 would billy goat the same signal would cause the Hytera to drop. I believe it is a firmware decoder issue. Hytera failed to respond to me when I told them i'm in the USA. kc9qle also at gmail.
