• 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'm having trouble programming the 2 tone optional signaling on my 5210. I have entered the tones and everything and having the radio making 3 loud beeps after the tones go off but I'm trying to change the alert to what my local EMS has their kenwood radios doing which is a high low tone alert. Does anyone have any ideas on how to program this? Here is a video on youtube that has another alert tone that i would also like to be able to program http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JcqusEnwc30 start watching a 1:40

just play with the alert tones till it makes a sound you like by adjusting the frequency and length. the software has 8 preprogrammed alerts that you can modify.

There was no hi-low alert generated by the handheld. A beeping alert and a steady tone alert.

The alert tone options are in the programming software.
