• 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.

I am not sure if this question got covered by another topic but i couldnt find it while searching.

This is in relation to the ARMER 800mhz p25 TRS that is in MN. the radios have SOA (scene of action) channels which are point to point conventional frequencies that are in the radio if the TRS goes down. are these frequencies standard across all of the radios in the system/p25 800mhz p25 systems nationwide and also, do these channels carry the P25 encoding?

There are 5 nationwide 800 MHz interop channels.

Some States have expanded that pool to include channels unique to that State.
Some may have used channels common with adjacent states to aid interop, other may have used different channels to make the total pool larger and prevent interference.

SOA channels can be those or any other channel (I don't know what MN has done).

Calling channels are almost always analog, but interoip can be anything the regional plan allows.
