• 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.

Problem Communicating to EFJ5100 from MOTO

I am having trouble hearing conventional P25 SIMPLEX channels on EFJ5100s when talking from MOTO XTS or APX radios. If I depress the monitor button on the EFJ, the communication is heard.

The radios are programmed with the same RX and TX for FREQ, NAC, and DES codes/keys.

The firmware revision on the XTS is 05.05.03 (12.0.0)
The version of the EFJ is 2.8.15

Anyone else had a similar issue?

Thanks in advance,

That resolved the problem - the MOTO does not force a TG ID when programming a conventional P25 channel and the XTS radios talked to one another fine.

The EFJ forced a TGID when programming P25 conventional and thus wouldnt break squelch until a TG was programmed into the MOTOs.

Not sure if I understand this. I've got some EFJ's that work fine with numerous different model Motorolas on digital simplexes with nothing additional in either program other than the same nac. Any other clarification would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try programming the EFJ with TG 0x001 or 0xFFF. FFF is P25 standard for ALL_CALL and from looking at the P25 frames coming out of a Motorola this is what Moto use for the default TG field.

Cheers,

Why are we using talkgroups for conventional channels?
