• 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.

Acquired a Quantar VHF repeater All is well, but I cannot get it to generate a PL tone on its transmit. All the settings appear to be correct although there is no specific "Activate TX PL" type setting in the RSS. It accepted the codes ok in the menu that did reference PL. We do not require PL to access the repeater but we desire to have PL on its TX at all times including hang time. This is standalone, no external controller (yet) What did I miss?.

Problem solved

I found that the Quantar does not generate the PL tone if the Quantar TX is keyed using the front panel PTT
button.

It is generating the tone in repeat mode. Whew!

Thanks

All the higher end Motorola repeaters do that. A PITA if you want to hail a radio via the local mic.
