• 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.

Tera 7400 Programming Help

Is there a resource somewhere to help me setup a 7400 radio? I have the software communicating to the radio. I just can't seem to translate groups/codes/colors/zones into a meaningful method to setup the radio. I've looked through Youtube etc. It seems this radio wasn't supper popular like the Anytones.

Thanks for any help!

Most DMR programming is similar, so watching some youtube videos for other DMR radios might help you out. Generally, first create your talkgroups - one at a time (each talkgroup will need to have a frequency, group number, color code, and time slot specified, as well as a text tag that is meaningful to you). Once you create all the talkgroups, you can organize them into zones.
DMR design and programming is quite different from analog, so try to keep an open mind.

Another suggestion... If you can get a functional codeplug from somewhere, even if it's not for your area, you could study it to see how it goes together.
