• 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.

Purchased an Icom F-4061T off Ebay earlier this week. Got the radio programmed today, but when we did, we have found that with the software CS-F3060 V 1.2 and latest firmware 1.8 their is no option to turn on scanning function of the radio, also there is no ability to label channels as mixed mode they have to be either digital or analog in each bank. Anyone know if there is a work around or solution for this problem?

I see in the specs sheets and manual that it says the radio should scan as well as be able to do mixed mode.

Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

You should be able to assign the scan function to one of the front panel pushbuttons. A quick touch should start the scan. A long press should allow access to the different scan lists. I can't help on the mixed mode as my radios don't have the option boards.

The 4061 will not scan in digital mode, when you setup the radio for "LMR digital" it disables the scan function radio wide.

The 4061 does not support mixed mode operation either, these are early (1st generation) iDAS radios, if you want one that supports scan and mixed mode, you'll need to move up to a newer radio such as an 4161 or 4261. Nor does it support encryption (not that this is an issue for ham radio)

iDAS was just born back in 2005 when these hit the market, 99 percent of them don't even have the UT-119 installed. Be lucky you got that the board alone is $200 if you can find it.

V1.2 is the last version of the 4061 software.

Under SCAN|Scan List, I use M3(R.Sel), which is scan, with priority and Tx on the rotary selected channel. Turn text off (blank) to see scan progression.

Digital disables scan in the 4061. The 4161 is a different radio and will do scan any way you want it.

My standard setup in Key & Display is:
Emer- Lock
Side 1- Moni
Side 2- CH Up (Up/Dn is used for User Set Mode adjustments and Zone Selection
Side 3- CH Down
P0- Scan B Start/Stop (Scan A has issues restarting after PTT)
Hold;P0- accesses scan list selection.
P1- Scan Add/Del
P2- Zone
P3- User Set Mode (access Common|Set mode from the radio)
