• 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,

Not sure if this is the correct spot to place this, so if a mod feels the need to move it, please do so.

I have been tasked with building a station alert system for my fire house and have a general direction of which way to go, but would like some input from others who have built the same thing...


We will have a total of 6 speakers on this system.

4 can be on one channel with the other two needing to be independent. The reason for this is we need the capability to turn down the volume in certain areas at certain times.

Speakers will be placed as follows: one in each dorm (3) one in training room (1) one in day room (1) one in bay (1)

We have a minitor V with amplified charger. I now need help with selecting an AMP and speakers for this build. Any suggestions would be great.

Get a TOA 70 volt amplifier. Atlas Sound volume control with relay for each speaker. What this does is allow you to turn down the volume on any speaker and when the Minitor goes off, you can then send a signal to the volume control and it will make all speakers go fun volumes.
