• 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.

Was wondering if there is a way to manually select a Systems Site for the G5?
I've been able to use a different site by turning the radio off and back on, but thought I'd ask if there is a way to accomplish this thru the menu?

Yes, you have to program each site as it's own system basically. So only program the control and alternate channels and the site ID for the one that you want to hear. Then you create a zone and select that system only and apply the talkgroups to the channel knob position.

I'll use NC Viper as an example. When I'm driving up and down I-95, I have all the sites programmed in along with the talkgroups for NCSHP that cover I-95. But when I want to monitor a particular county that I'm in, I create a separate system that has only those sites and talkgroups and assign that to another knob position.

I was hoping for a menu selection I might have overlooked. Thank you for your solution. I'll will give it a try.

It's not obvious, put you can copy and paste(by right-clicking) whole systems in the programming software. Sometimes it's easier to do that, and change the site settings, rather than building each one from scratch.
