• 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 recently acquired an Icom F5021 to listen to my fire department which I am an explorer at. All Fire/sheriff in the county are vhf analog systems. But the City of Canton Ga, which is the city closest to me uses vhf NXDN for their police. I had their old vhf frequency put in (cause why not) and while going through all the channels and as I past by Canton pd, I heard traffic so I paused and listened and it surely was Canton pd. And it was digital radio traffic...does anyone know why I can hear this? And no they do not simulcast their dispatch. It's trunked NXDN.

First of, do you have the 5121D or just a regular 5021? They make that same radio analog only (5021) or NXDN digital/analog (5121D/5221D). They all use the same identical chassis.
