• 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.
  • Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

unusual hang-time or "lock" when scanning ProVoice frequencies conventionally

has anyone run across this problem after programming an LPE to scan a set of ProVoice frequencies conventionally?

the symptom: out of 20 frequencies that are programmed in the LPE to be scanned conventionally, the radio will periodically "lock" when it encounters heavy activity and will not return to scanning until the LCN progression comes back to the channel it stopped on.

for example, the radio is busy scanning away at frequencies 1-20 and then stops on frequency 4, it will not continue scanning additional activity until the system completes a full LCN rotation and comes back to 4. the ProVoice system being scanned "stair steps" through the LCN, going in a numeric progression (e.g., 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc, and then returning to 1)

the difficulty here is figuring out why the LPE hangs up on an LCN when the system gets busy.

any thoughts?

Why not just program the LPE to trunk the system instead of using it in conventional mode?

I think that might br the only way to hear telephone interconnects or all I calls if they are using ProVoice for everything.

the radio i came across that night was not programmed for ESK. older software or something like that.

anyway, it was my bright idea to just suggest scanning conventionally, but it doesn't seem to work out so well...
