• 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.

I just bought a couple Baofengs (2) BF-F8HP's...I have Chirp software on computer, that was easy...I'm trying to program these Baofengs to communicate with Motorola Talkabout Family radios. The Talkabout radios are on channel 1, with a interference eliminator code of 1...I know most will say just turn off the eliminator code on the Motorola's but these are radios for a public school I'm communicating with.
I also need to know how to program the Baofeng's to talk to channel 11, interference eliminator code 11...thanks anyone and everyone!!!

The information you seek may be found in the Talkabout manual:
http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/T5XXX_User_Manual_E.pdf

See page 21 for the channel number/frequency chart
See page 22 for the interference eliminator/CTCSS tone chart

For example, channel 1, eliminator code 1 is:
462.5625 MHz @ 67.0 Hz

Baofeng BF-F8HP radios can NOT be used on or for FRS. They are NOT type certified as set forth in FCC Part 95.
