• 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.

kinda OT but not...anyone know how to "sticky" an MD-2017 to that static TG? Say I have 3100 static in the dashboard...on my radio if I key up does not TX but simply says on the screen my user ID> TG 0 - one would think that if you have a static TG in your dashboard that would also be the default TX group for the hand held. (through an MMDVM hotspot)

Let me expand on this a little: ..I cant seem to get this radio to "stay" for TX on the TG that I have in "sticky" in pi-star-mmdvm (say 3100), So this is what happens...I'm listening just fine to a QSO on say 3100, which I have in STATIC in the dashboard. So now I want to join the QSO or say something, I then have to go MENU > CONTACTS > MANUAL DIAL and type in the 3100 and then key, and it will then be able to TX to TG3100 ....15 seconds later....I'm having to do the EXACT same thing if I wait more then say 5 seconds between a mic keying. I am one of "those" guys that actually try not to quick key in case another station wants to join the QSO, like I said if I do that...it looses the TG and I end up with a red light and see my user# > TG0 in the display and at that time I have to quickly ...go back to the MENU> CONTACTS > MANUAL DIAL thing again.....wowowowo. IS ther a setting I'm missing in the settings of this radio? Any help appreciated!

I'm not familiar with the MD-2017...never owned one. But the best way to do it is to create a channel for the talkgroup you want to use. There is no need to use manual dial, though I'm sure there is some setting in the CPS to change that length from 15 seconds to something else.
