• 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've recently acquired the D2HHG1 MA Com radio. I'm completely new to this manufacture / area of radios and see a few different branding on it (GE, Ericsson, and MA Com), and I've found some information stating it's an Orion radio.

What I'm curious to is what the specs are for this radio and if anyone could point me to a user guide. All I know is it's the remote option and I have two control heads.

Also, if anyone has any programming information that would be great. I use a lot of other VHF radios for emergency services and I program almost all of them, but this one is different than anything I've used before.

Thank you!

Thank you for the info! I too googled it and found that page but that's all I could find.

I'd like to find out things like channel number, grouping options, other programmable options.

Most Orions hold around 250 channels if I remember correctly. You can set up groups of channels as you wish (one group of 50 channels, another of 4 channels, etc) until you reach the max channel limit. You cannot scan across groups though, you can only scan one group at a time (dual priority scan as well, which is nice). The programming software has alot of options and takes some getting used to, but it's not bad.

Lots of programmable options (T99 paging, CG, wide/narrow band, G-Star signalling, etc). Luckily for you the D2HHG7 is a narrowband compliant radio, and although most people find they won't take splinter frequencies, I got mine to. Here's a link to the EDACS version operators manual....your VHF conventional model will operate almost identically...

And the installation manual (very helpful for a GE/Ericsson newbie)...

They are very nice radios. Join that Yahoo group and sniff around a bit, you should be able to find what you need to get programming started. Good luck!

Thank you very much! That's exactly what I was looking for. I also PM'ed you about the programming.
