• 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.

So I own three UHF NEXEDGE radios, and I'm very happy with them. Though, I don't think I'm fully utilizing all the features of NEXEDGE. Keep in mind it's all going to be simplex operation. I don't have a NXR.

Can someone explain individual, and group calling? Also explain anything else that I can do with them, utilizing NEXEDGE. Just trying to get all my moneys worth.

My understanding is this, to use this analogy, Individual Call is like calling another person on the cell phone. Its a private between the two users.
Group call, still using the telephone analogy, would be like a conference call where you would call many people. Everyone with that group in their radio would hear your traffic.

Hope this helps.

Exactly. This is a common thing on trunked systems, setting up private calls, or doing the group thing.

You might want to play around with the short data side of things, set up some simple text messaging between the radios, etc.

You will need to program your radios to allow "status" function on one of the keys. Pressing that button will allow you to select from a list of pre-made messages or enter your own using SDM (short data message mode). Once you have the message entered, hitting the PTT key will send the message.

You can also program them to status on power on and/or power off. You can remote stun/kill a radio if you want.
There are several pages of this in the in-depth manuals. I'd suggest seeing if you can get a copy of that from your dealer. Way too much for me to post here.
