• 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.

Hello all this is my first post so please be gentle with me if it is in the wrong topic

I have a Motorola Astro Saber Digital APCO.

where do i put the freq and Nac. I know i put the freq under personality, but where do i put the Nac tone 466.
or do i need to convert the Nac tone.
I am using CPS 5.02
oh im also using some analog freq in the radio as well.

Thanks

there is also a choice for digital carrier squelch if you don't know the NAC or don't want to program it

By convert I think he meant something along the lines of Hex or decimal entry in CPS for his NAC.

The usual entry for the NAC code is given in hex format and I'd bet your 466 is also HEX so just enter in 466.

If you know 466 to be correct but it still doesn't work, and since we don't know the origin of who gave you 466, by this I mean we don't truly know if it was given to you in decimal or HEX format, therefore I'd try 1D2 and see if this works

Or like others have said simply set, under the conventional personality ASTRO menu the RX UNMUTE rule: to Digital CSQ.
