• 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,

Are you successfully decoding the control channel via Trunkview and getting GTC commands?

Does the radio then change to the voice frequency and you only hear the base side?

If so it's likely that control are line feed straight into the system therefore the mobile wont be repeated.

You can allways scan the input if the mobile is close and still recieve it. Inputs are around 171mhz.

Hi,


Ive added a few here but don't have the details of who they are for or the control channels.

http://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?ctid=4517

If you do find out i'd be interested to know so I can update the database.

Trunking can be found in all frequency bands so its worth scanning around and see if you can pick up the distinctive MPT1427 control channel.

Currently stuck in Miami but when I'm back in the UK I'll check my notes for Scottish trunked nets.
Off the top of my head: there are more systems over on the east than the west. Main ones that spring to mind to the west are Glasgow council which operates quite a busy stystem (Hamilton also uses a system that could be linked), ambo (quite a few control channels should be clear where you are), fire & rescue status system
