• 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.

Unication Questions

Hi all- I am using a Unication G5 primarily for scanning purposes alongside my Motorola XTS product. Please forgive my ignorant questions, but is there a "nuisance" function on the Unication or similar to Motorola products? I have multiple frequencies on knob position 1, and then I have all of the single frequencies laid out on the other knobs. My issue is that it takes the unication several seconds to load the new channel once the knob is changed. Sometimes these are critical seconds of lost audio.

Also, is there any way to switch zones while traffic is being received? It seems the screen is totally locked out while receiving.

Thanks.

Leave a knob position un-programmed. Switch to that position (or a knob position with no traffic), then change zone.

Reportedly, a nuisance delete will be made available on an upcoming firmware version, now in beta, aimed at those of us who use our G's as scanners. The new firmware will also have the ability to scan multiple sites in one knob position, therefore limiting the need to switch zones. A talkgroup hold function will also be included in this update.

There is a nuisance delete feature in the beta, which they just opened up to EVERYONE.

How can everyone take advantage of the beta? I don't see anything on their website about it, maybe I missed it.
