• 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've been monitoring a Motorola Type II system that has no info on RR . Anytime theres activity on it I write down the tgid's. Most of the tgid's are Type II but theres a couple of them that seem to change.
For example 720 will be the dispatcher and then 704 will be the other end of the conversation,
6272 dispatcher 6288 other person. Heres a construction type operation 40000 Dispatcher
and 40016 Other Conversation. Everything else seem to work right other then these few odd tgid's. Any ideas?

Status Bits

I tried the status bits. It changed the tgid's from 704, 720 to 713 to 721. I read the article but still confused on status bits. I always leave them on ignore because they are so confusing. It take some getting use to.
Do you think this might be a Type I talkgroup? I would think fleet maps would be a whole lot easier then these status bit things. But then it would change the system to a Type IIi Hybrid wouldn't it?

Have you thought about running a trunking program to see and help record data? I started using unitrunker within the last year and love it. You will need a scanner with a discriminator tap and a sound card input on your computer.

Discriminator Tap

Maybe later on I might try it. I read the instructions on how to do it on the bcd396t but right now its brand new and looks good with no holes drilled in and wires sticking out.

Try different flleet emaps and see if it follows the talk better. I still have a motorola1 system in my area and played around with fleetmaps for a long time before hitting the jackpot!! Luckily,there are not too many system ones out threre!!!!!!!!!
