• 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 an Astro Saber, and i am interested in programming it with my local Passport system, i want to program the channels for RX only conventional, but when i do, The system transmitts every 2 seconds or less, tying up my scan list, is there a way to program Passport so it doesn't have the data burst on the conventional channel?

There isn't really a way to do that, from what I understand of passport the collect and home channel will TX the burst every so often and will carry most of the traffic on the system.

I'll save you the effort of doing this and tell you the Astro Saber does not support Passport LTR Trunking.

im well aware that the astro saber does not support LTR, I am asking if i programmed the Passport CC conventionally in my radio, is there a way to stop the CC from the data burst every few seconds?

No. That's somewhat akin to programming EDACS conventionally, and not wanting to hear the end of transmission beep sequence.
