• 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.

Question here and sorry if posted somewhere else I searched and found nothing.

Our Ambulance service uses TK-5210-K7 (VHF) radios Hardwire Vs. 2.0 We have KPG-95D Vs 5.20 software.
One of our medics have asked if we can load the NOAA station for the area in it. Not as important to have the alerts as to just hear it so starting simple. I set it to recive only and put in the freq 162.475 but cannot find anywhere to put the FIPS code of 017189. I am assuming this code has to be set also because it is quiet without it. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

Ok I was wrong it does pickup a broadcast I was just downstairs in our day room which is an old fall out shelter lead lined walls and all LOL. So on to next step can it be set for alerts? and if so how do I set the FIPS code.

The radio can not use the fips code. It was not designed to act as a weather alert reciever.

The only alerting you might be able to get it to do it setup two-tone decode for 1050hz. That is the tone used when an alert goes out, but you will hear all the alerts off the tower, not just your county.

but in order for the tone alert he would have to leave it on that channel.

I program VHF radios with the wx channel but it so they can go to it and listen for a few mins then switch back. Also never put in scan list cause it will always stop.
