• 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 am using the KPG-49D for Windows for programming, and I key up on the radio on either channels 1 or 2 in group 1 it will go to channel 3 to transmit. Can anyone tell me why, or point me in the right direction to getting it so I can transmit on channels 1 and 2?

Under "channel edit" see if the "data" box is checked. Uncheck all channels used for normal voice transmit. Common whoops...

If a channel is set for "data", it will be used by the external PTT from the KCT-19 accessory connector (ie if a gps modem is connected). If you press the mic button PTT, it assumes you want a voice channel and switches to the first non-data channel. In your case channel 3. A real hair puller, but I've learned my lesson. Glad to help.
