• 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.

Ok I have to different questions about two different radio's.

First radio. Icom Ic-F3061

I am trying to set up the scanning feature on this for a friend. But when I turn on the scan feature it randomly stops on different freq's in the scan list. And no,no one is transmitting on the freq's that it stops on. Does anyone know how to make it scan normal, to where it only stops scanning if it is a busy channel.

Second radio. Icom IC-F33

I am trying to set up the 2 tone feature on the radio as a pager. I am able to pick up the tones on it when set off. But the freq is always open. Is there any way to make it so you can not hear the freq until it picks up tones? And afterwards how do you reset it so it is back to it original settings.

Any help would be great. Thanks Josh
