• 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, I'm new here. I'm trying to program my TK-380 with the software KPG-49D and I have everything I'm trying to do but setting a priority channel. Can someone tell me how to do this. I searched the web and they talked about the software KPG-60D but from what I can find out, this is DOS software that runs on win 95/98 and I got rid of this back in 95/98. is there another software that can be used for this that is window based?

KPG49D is the correct version of software for the 380 radio and is Windows 95 thru XP solid and Vista most times but trouble on Win 7 and not for Win 8.


As for priority, do you have a scan list made?

Under ediet then is a drop down for scan settings, this here you set the time of scan and priority.

Thank you cabletech, I see what you are talking about.

Under scan type = fixed or list ( I changed it to list and see where you put to scan )
revert = selected or selected + talk back )
dropout delay = 3
dwell time = 3
lookback A = 0.50
lookback B = 1.90

But I can not find where to set channel 1 to priority. What I have is 10 channels scanning but 1 channel if they are calling to me it needs to break through so I can hear it even if another channel is talking at the time, and I need to talk back on that channel as well which I understand is the delay time set.

thank you for your help

Your TK-380 is set to trunking as a model type. Priority scan is not available for trunking, that's why it doesn't show. If you do not have any need for LTR trunking, you're better off setting the model type to conventional only. Priority scan will then be available. However, you will need to start from scratch in your programming after changing this.

Accessed by the "model" pull down menu.
