• 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.

Question to any that are familiar: have Kenwood NX1300 radios at work. All have tone alert (incoming call) that is driving a few of us nuts. Story is that individual radios can't have it turned off because it's a technical issue - so it's all are none have it activated. I haven't programmed radios for awhile - other that yeasu ham units. Is it not an issue of just programming an individual radio in the group to be tone free or am I missing something? First time to the forums here.

If using NXDN Group calls, go to the NXDN settings on the software, go to Group ID List and set alert tone to OFF. Software is KPGD6N. Reach out to a dealer to get the software. If using individual calls it's the same process. I'll post screenshots if I can remember to.

Similar option for DMR. Unless what you're hearing is not the call alert, but instead a BOT PTT ID being sent by the transmitting radio. I think it's either on the first DMR/NXDN options tab or the first general options tab, but not sure.

[Add] There could be a password required. There could also be other reasons you don't want to re-program the radio, like confusing and/or angering whoever programs them normally.

NXDN and DMR don't send an audible PTT ID since the unit ID is continuously transmitted with the digital voice data.
