• 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 have an vmde-200 installed in my vx-929, the radio decodes mdc1200 but doesn't decode DOS mdc1200? Is there anything I can do to make it work. Plus when it decodes mdc it makes a chirp instead of the squawk how can I fix this as well?

What do you mean by "but doesn't decode DOS mdc1200?" If it decodes at all, then it is working.

Do you have the instruction manual for the VMDE? Also, contact Cimarron and they have answers to just about every problem. They made the unit (800-487-7184).

Thet also have web site help, cimtechcorp.com

I was going to attach the manual but it is to big. You can PM me for it or get it from Cimarron.

It decodes MDC1200 but it doesn't decode data operated squelch mdc1200. I was wondering if there's anything I can do to in the programming software to get this to work. I guess I'll give them a call, just wondering if anyone else has an answer here.
