• 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.

Greetings everyone,

This is my first post here, so I'll get right to it. I recently bought a Kenwood TK-370 that has the FPP opened up on it, it's also my first attempt at using commercial gear. I have programmed Amateur Radio repeaters into it and carry on conversations, but I keep getting reports of low audio. I close talk it to the point where I'm practically swallowing the HT. I've searched High and Low for an answer to this, but can't find anything. I'm thinking there has to to be a way to increase the mic gain (there's four pots under the board, but I can't find a service manual to tell me which one does what).

If anyone can aged some light on this, it is appreciated.

I have .pdf copies of the service manuals but they are big!
The original service manual is 4.5 Mb, the addendum is about 7Mb. If your email can handle that, I can send them to you. (PM me with an email address)

One thing that does come to mind is that the radio may be programmed for narrow band. It is selectable in the FPU software. How that works with FPP, I dont know. But something to consider.

As far as switching from narrow band, I can't find anything in the programming software.
