• 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.

Vertex VXR-7000 and 9000 project....help!!

Not open for further replies.


Feb 24, 2001
I have 2 UHF repeaters that i used to have linked, via some VXR-1000's that were connected to the DB25 on the back. I have decided that i wanted to have multi-tone abilities on the link. So, i have bought 2 TP3200 controllers and i have them connected to the repeaters. I was trying to use the VX-2500 to run on the TX side of the controller, to talk to the other repeaters input. I planned on putting them in busy channel lock out to prevent a "looping" effect. My problem is, that I can get tx audio to pass from the controller and into the VX-2500, but no tone. The TP3200 has an audio out line and a tone output line. I took both of these to the AF input line on the DB9 of the VX2500. It passes the audio, but no tone. Am i going to have to go in on the board of the radio, and try to modify it, to inject the tone?

Any help is appreciated!
