• 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.

We recently went through the P25 upgrade and now we can not program the second priority in our radio. If we are in programming mode and we choose sel, it will add to the scan list. But if you hit select again, it does not give you the "dot" or "blinking dot". Did something get deleted during programming? If so, I am not familiar with the configuration side, what should I reference in working with the person who configures the software?

It's an option on the "General Tab" in the Scan List setup. Priority 1 & Priority 2 can be set to "Selected Channel, Operator Select, Disabled, or Fixed". The other Non-Priority members can also be set to Operator Select or Fixed. If you can "VIEW" your list and you don't see the blinking dot on any groups then yours must be set to Disabled for Priority 2. I would just ask if Priority 2 can be set to "operator select" in future subscriber re-programmings.....do it nicely they might work with you!!!!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for the information. We've given it to our programmer and he was excited to learn more and now we can set our priority 2 Channel!

Thank you so much!
