• 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.

I have two NX-700's and I have been messing around to make a repeater out of them on NXDN. I do not want to spend all the money for a NXR. Is there any way to make two NX-700's into a NXDN repeater? Or just a plain repeater.

The land of broken calculators.
If you figure out a way to do it, I'd love to know.
I'd be really surprised if you couldn't just connect the two radios to a controller via their accessory connector. But the big question is does that convert the received digital signal to analog in the process. That might not be a deal breaker. I have no idea but I'd like to cross band repeat with two NXDN mobiles myself. I never got around to playing with it.

Yep, the NX-x00's would put out analog audio off the rear connector, and doing the "double conversion" from D -> A and A ->D usually ends up sounding like crap. You can certainly try it, but you'd probably have better luck either keeping it analog all the way, or getting the proper NXR repeater.

All the connections you'd need to interface a repeater controller will be on the rear DB25.

Its quite possible to do this as has been stated in the post above...yes it will accept NXDN...it will affect the audio and its not as clean as a true nxdn repeater but it is workable and is often used for vehicle repeaters for nxdn
