• 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.

Idk where this post fits in so here it goes

Have a Motorola xts2500 and I want to use it for work so I used a scanner to get the freq and prog it In
It has the fpp option I can hear the other radio on mine and when I go to talk on my radio the other radio won't pick it up. But when I hit the squelch I can hear it over the band there point to point no repetars in use.
Is there a way that there's a pl code on the the tx or rx only?

Sounds like a PL/DPL mis-match somewhere. And yes, you can have a tx/rx-only PL/DPL. In your case it sounds like you may be transmitting on the wrong one.

Yes it is possible. Infact depending on the radios your work uses, its possible they have some sort of split. Although point-to-point it is not a usual occurance. It almost sounds as is if you have a base-to-mobile and mobile-to-base setup and not a mobile-to-mobile.

In all likelyhood to answer your question yes, the Tx is a different tone.
