• 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.

Hello All,
I just bought a new Kenwood NX-5200-K2 Intrinsically Safe Option, and also got a license key for the DMR Tier 2 option. Been playing around with programming, been work to interface with other brand DMR specifically Hytera. Been having some trouble in Direct Mode, I can talk to the Hytera Radio from the Kenwood, but when I try to talk from the Hytera to the Kenwood, nothing comes thru, and the RSSI meter kind of flickers real fast. Anyone out there have any ideas? What setting am I missing? I believe I have the talk groups and individual ID's set correctly in both radios, I've even tried to do an individual call and not group call and it still will not work. I have programmed in our local Sheriff's office channels in DMR with talkgroups and individual ids (they are on MOTOTRBO), it seems to be working perfectly, but from what I've seen Hytera and MOTOTRBO are extremely similar. In advance thanks for all your help.

If you contact your local kenwood dealer they can get you the programming guide to properly program your radio.
