• 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 was just programming my Unication G5 with conventional VHF frequencies. Surprisingly, it took 17 Total Channel. If I recall correctly, there is, or at least was a limit of 16 conventional channels. Will the Unication G5 monitor the 17th channel or disregard it?

PPS help says "At most 16 channels can be added into the scan list.", but it doesn't say what happens if you add more than that :)

I'm glad this topic was brought up. I haven't done any updating on my programming of my G5 since Christmas a year ago and I know there are a lot of firmware updates as well as capability updates. I always thought I could put in a lot more conventional frequencies and I didn't realize it was only 16.

Has anybody ran into the actual limit, yet?
