• 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.

Can anyone tell me if the Kenwood NXR 710/810 can be used with a single antenna or if it requires two antennas, My amateur radio group is wanting to upgrade to this and I wanted to make sure we got everything we need before we bought it. Thanks,
Brian

Hmmm ok, thanks for your reply, that's what I was afraid of, I'm betting they aren't cheap either.
IF they already have a repeater, and the idea is to replace what is in place, then you're ahead of the game.
If I understand you correctly that is. There is nothing more to do then swap out the old, and install the NXR.

IF your group is wanting to become part of the WW NXDN HAM group, (you need a KTI-3)
I have all the information on that at nxdninfo.com website.
I also have all the needed documentation on how to setup the
multi-site information and how to set up the raspberry Pi or like devices and the NXCORE.
The network uses Very Narrow FM (6.25) across the entire network. I am not aware of
anyone using 12.5 NXDN (9600) due to the issue with Icoms, they are all 6.25 in digital mode.

Just need a BNC for the RX port and N for the TX, program it up for Mixed mode and have fun!

We don't have one currently, we're paying a third party for service in the commercial band and was wanting to go to our own on the amateur frequencies, I thought the nxr810 had the duplexer built in and that's why I was looking at that particular model. What all would I need to setup an amateur repeater using one antenna?

Nxr710/810, duplexer, polyphaser, hardline, antenna, tower climbers.
Not know where and what you have access to,
Wanted to lay it ALL out there.
1400 about for repeater and kti3.
Duplexer, around 600 to 800.
Hardline look about 2.00 to 2.50 a foot.
Antenna, db420, 900 about.
Polyphasers, 50-70 for two
Tower crew, good guess... 1500 to 2500

Figuratively speaking

Good Lord, I under estimated a little then. Thanks for the heads up for sure. Are there any repeaters (even in the amateur band such as Yeasu) that have the duplexer built in ?
