• 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.

Does anyone know the changes in the latest firmware/software for the nx5000/nx3000/nx1000 radios? I have all three. I understand there were no release notes with these. Thanks in advance. Talking about 4.30, 3.30, and 1.42/1.52. Thanks in advance.

Hi Bill, no, they have not released any notes, nor do they do that as a courtesy. I have been trying hard to get that changed, so sorry to say
KWD is standing their ground on this.

Latest Firmware fixes are List Scan fix for lock ups, DMR t3 roaming fix

OTHERWISE, your call to update to the latest.

Hey Evans, is there any "pressure" you can put on anyone - or tell me where I can go to put this into a "suggestion box" - to have KPG-D1N support more than six slots for talkgroup ranges from a system key?

My system key has six ranges in it, and will soon have a seventh. (I had seven ranges in it previously but merged two of them together to deal with this problem.) However D1N only recognizes the first six slots. Anything after the sixth slot is not even detected, if I try to enter a talkgroup in the range in slot 7 (or above), I'm told I don't have access to that TG.

Hope you understand what I'm saying - it would be great if it can be opened up to match whatever constraints are on the key itself.

You say system key and Ranges with s slots? Need more info on this.
Email me direct with screenshots and more details please

4.31 fixes a DMR issue with Encryption in site roaming could also fix other things but I know it fixed that issue

Sorry for possibly dumb questions, but is the firmware updated the same way you'd program the radio?

Also, I see on Kenwood's site that the NX-3300 now does DMR digital - would my older units be able to do DMR if I upgrade the firmware?

KFL is the firmware loader for the new nx series (3k and 5k)
The 3000 do dmr OR NXDN, not both at the same time. Should be in the radio already,
Contact your dealer to get the latest firmware and software as I have noted.
