• 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.

Working off a XPR8300 and a mix of digital and analog channels is there a reliable way to have a NOAA weather radio transmit (possibly a VOX feature) on the primary channel for when there is a weather alert for the county the system is in? Has anyone tried this type of setup before?

Thanks

Mix? Does this mean the repeater will work digital or analog, first in first out? Mixed Mode? If so, I doubt it. What talk group ID would it transmit? That's determined by the subscriber. I think you'd need a SAME receiver tied to a control station and have to broadcast it that way.

Our solution can take EMWIN alerts an distribute a device aware parsed version of then as text to users or groups.

If you want audio, you could combine EMWIN, ASTERISK, APP_RPT, IBM''s TTS engine together to do a group and or direct call announce using the Repeters telephone interconnect EID.

The zone has a mix of digital and analog channels but the repeater is managing a digital frequency. The weather alert would be transmitted from a mobile mototrbo radio used as a base/control station in our administration building also used for regular voice transmissions. I'm looking for a setup that would transmit the weather alert from that radio to the digitally repeated channel.
