• 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.

Is it possible to run two groups without overlapping of course each group on a separate slot without repeter

Or is it necessary to repetter in order to operate the two groups on the slot properly

The repeater provides the timing/synchronization for each slot. I know Motorola has software that allows one radio in a group of radios to provide the slot timing/synchronization, however all radios in the group must be able to hear that radio.

Hytera can still have two simultaneous calls on one frequency in simplex but not in the same way. They had to get rid of the TDMA mode which creates two logical channels on one frequency. They still have pseudo trunk which can put handle two simplex calls/freq but on one logical channel. You could still have your two groups operate on one frequency but one group can interfere with another if they use up both slots.

Personally I find the pseudo trunk more useful than TDMA mode but they both have pros and cons

Never had any issues getting it working, just need radios that have the relevant licence! If you have a Hytera radio that doesn't support it they lock onto the first slot that is open even if its not relevant. You can mix and match with limitations (all hyteras that I have tried only transmit on one slot in simplex)
