• 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.

Hi, i have made the dock to program my pager using the DIY guide mentioned in this forum. I have not yet puchased the software to do it but I wanted to know if there was a way to test the thing so that I know it works before I blow the money on the software.

Thanks

You can download the software for a Minitor 5 directly from Motorola, if you have access to one of those to test but you have to purchase the 3/4 software.

Bump, if i use the minitor IV with the minitor V pps will it at least give me an error saying something to the effect of "You cant use that pagers with this PPS" or will it still say Serial Communication-Data Transmission Error.

I have everything set up, pager in Programming mode, etc.

Thanks

That's the on/off DUTY, and it allows you to switch off certain sets of tones when you are off duty. Not very useful unless you have an all-call or work for multiple agencies.
