• 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.

Ive gone through multiple minitor 3's and I am now realizing that something is wrong. Initally i had a minitor 3 that I was reprogramming atleast 2 times a month. After a while it was constantly squelching when on open scan(C Switch). After a while i relized that this was would only happen on channel 1. No matter what the frequency was. Now that pager no longer even receives anything. I bought another one and again the same thing happened except it skipped right to the not receiving anything stage. I am starting to think it is my programming cradle, how everwhen i read the codeplug from the pager, it comes back the same way I put it in. Anyone have ANY ideas including obvious ones that I may be over looking.

check the squelch level on the pager. Even then, if you are near a wireless router that thing is going to go crazy.

nrembis said it right, the Minitor III was a bad pager. Motorola had a recall to "fix" the problem, but I don't think they ever did solve the problem. They fixed it by coming out with the IV.
