• 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.

I'm trying to program the radio, receive mode only for a couple of P25 channels (everything else I have is analog). I have the NAC. When I uploaded, the radio won't output the received audio stream. I've used the exact NAC (826), NAC F7E and the default NAC 293 - all with no luck. The LED will illuminate indicating traffic on the channel but it won't open. I know that there is voice traffic due to it being received on my BC796D scanner.

If I set the personality to Mixed Mode then the radio will output the audio stream but I only get the 'noise' of the data streams and still not any voice.

I'm using v5.2 of KPG-95DK software.

I'm told that the radio system I'm trying to listen to is a Motorola Astro system and I'll be unable to program it as a standard P25 implementation. First I heard that there was a technical difference between the two.

If you ever run into the issue, the Motorola system in question was programmed in a wide-band mode for their P-25 implementation. The Kenwood software doesn't allow this as an option, therefore resulting in the mis-match.
