• 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.

Anyone know of frequency list for the channels of these digital radios?
Typically, commercial radios are programmed with the frequencies that the buyer is authorized to utilize. Other than certain frequencies that might be used in the testing process before leaving the factory, they do not come loaded with any usable frequencies.

Thanks, so there is no way to monitor them?

The radios come from the factory unprogrammed. In fact, when you turn on a brand new on out of the box, the display will show "UNPROGRAMMED". They require programming for the frequencies the owner is licensed for.

If you know what frequency they are programmed for, they may be able to be monitored.
-There are scanners that will decode NXDN/NexEdge
-The radios come from the factory with included encryption, and it doesn't cost anything to turn it on. If the radios you want to listen to are encrypted, you can't/won't be able to decode audio.
-You can purchase a Kenwood or Icom NXDN capable radio and program it for receive only, however, if the radio is running encryption, you still won't be able to hear audio. If it's a NexEdge trunked system, it will not decode the trunked system traffic unless your radio is legitimately on the system (as in programmed for it by the system administrator)
-If you want to listen to NXDN/iDAS/NexEdge, your best bet is to get a scanner.

Thank you very much for all your information.
