• 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.

My company is switching to new radios in the next month or so. Rumor has it we are getting xpr7580e's. I was told that they are on a connect plus system. My question is how is that different from a smart net or P 25 trunked system. Could I add smart net or P25 freqs to it. Can it also do 800 digital coventional freqs?

Connect Plus is a Motorola Mototrbo variant of DMR .
DMR is a TDMA specification developed by ETSI in Europe. It was adopted in the US.

P25 is an entirely different standard developed by APCO and the EIA/TIA in the US, it has been adopted elsewhere. It is primarily FDMA but has an extension to TDMA in phase 2. There are similarities to DMR, but they are incompatible.

If the radios you are getting are 800 MHZ you could add 800 conventional frequencies. The caveat being the "digital" part. They would have to be DMR, not P25 or anything else. Also if the radios are being rented, the system owner might not permit other frequencies in the radios. They might even be password protected.
