• 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.

Hello all,

I am both a Ham & IT admin for a hospital and after almost 4 years of asking, the administration finally purchased a Emergency Radio system for communicating with area hospitals & local EMA during the 'big one'.

I'm still acquainting myself with the software and doing some testing.

The head unit is connected via a CTI Products supplied Windows 10 gateway PC and we are using RadioPro Talk to remotely control the radio over hospital internal network.

I have a basic question...

The volume seems 'overdriven' from the radio into the gateway and is passed along to the remote stations. I've checked all settings, turned down the volume at the head unit, and of course lowered it way down on the receiving end at the PC in our command center. All audio seems harsh and overdriven and I can find no settings to lower it. There is no setting in the end-user software on the PC to lower it that I can find (just the ability to channel the audio to different outputs). It definitely sounds overdriven from the head unit somehow.

Here is the link to CTI Products resources documents. CTI Products - MCN - Documents
Look for RadioPro IP Gateway for Kenwood NEXEDGE NX-7xx/8xx and download the install guide. This show how to setup the NX-5700 radio to their gateway. For your specific problems I would first look at the interface cable between the radio and the gateway. The manual shows the pinout for the cable at the end. Pins 17& 18 on the DB25 connector on the NX-5700 is the audio output for the radio. This output is a fixed audio output that is not adjustable from the volume control of the radio.
