• 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.

Was curious whether it is permissable to transmit on the VHF MURS channels using P25 digital (simplex, 2 watt max power)?

What about using encryption in either analog or digital (DES/OFB) on MURS?

P25 Murs

Digital and data seem to be allowed by the FCC rules, so P25 should be okay....check out the PRSG (Personal Radio Steering Group) WEB page, they have a lot of info on it.

This is what is allowed in MURS:

(j) A MURS transmitter must transmit only emission types A1D, A2B,
A2D, A3E, F2B, F1D, F2D, F3E, G3E. Emission types A3E, F3E and G3E
include selective calling or tone-operated squelch tones to establish or
continue voice communications. MURS transmitters are prohibited from
transmitting in the continuous carrier mode.

APCO 25 is F1E according to my data and is not allowed in Part 95 MURS nor is encryption.
