• 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 did a tune search with my psr500 in the 800 band looking for new systems. it stopped on a frequency of 853.3500. It also showed it to be a motorola channel with the motor-boating sound you hear when hitting manual on a motorola control channel. I have had people tell me its still a ltr multinet system. But,do these systems give out an audible sound similar to motorola?? IS the scanner misreading it?,since multinet cant be trunked tracked?? Any help would be appreciated. I should mention I checked the fcc website and confirmed its a re-banded frequency for babylon,new york.

Unless GRE does some sort of kick ass update, there is no scanners today that will trunktrack LTR Multinet. It just isn't going to sound right.

MultiNet control channels sound like an open mic from a keyed in transmitter not a buzzing noise. You will get false readings when trying to decode it as a motorola system particularly on radio shack scanners.
