• 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 have 4 Kenwood TK-D340U DMR radios that I just programmed. They all communicate with each other. I am trying to get them to work with some Motorola XPR 3300 DMR radios. When I push the transmit button on either radio, the other radio's receive light shows that it is receiving the signal but no audio passes between them. I have gone over the programming for both radios and see nothing set wrong. I have correctly set the color code and time slot. Am I missing something on either radio

In order for dmr to work, you will need to program exactly the same frequency (tx and rx appropriate for your application), color code, slot, talkgroup number, and have encryption setting the same. I would see if you could get them to talk to each other in simplex first with no voice privacy. Once you do that, then incrementally layer in repeater, encryption, etc....

Dont forget on the RX side for the Motorola and the TX side you have to select a group / contact.
I made the mistake of leaving out the TX group / contact once and had a similar issue.
