• 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 have Telephone on an LTR system? or something that resembles such? For the last 2 days I've been hearing what looks like telephone calls on a particular private LTR system, on 2 specific TG's only. It sounds like you are dialing, then someone answers and they talk, the background noise stays on, unlike normal PTT operation when you hear some background noise only when the button is pressed. I hear it perfectly, just as if I were a 3rd party on some telephone conversation, and I never heard such a thing.

Oh ok. Is the telephone in the actual radio? or do you use a regular telephone but connected to the LTR instead of to the local telephone network?

The trunknig controller at the tower (controlling the repeater) is connected to a telephone line. The radio has an Interconnect talkgroup assigned to it. That talkgroup corresponds to an overdial or direct inward dial code. Each radio can have it's own phone number or overdial code. They can also place phone calls using the DTMF keypad.

Hope this helps you.

The LTR base station is connected to the telephone network.
The end user has a mobile radio that has either a DTMF microphone or a handset like a vehicle mounted cell phone.

Zetron makes Interconnect software, Most repeater systems (Conventional & Trunked) use it.
