• 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.

Make them yourself with a microphone, or use a text to speech program such as here: https://ttsreader.com/ and record the output using Audacity with the proper format as listed in the CPS. (wave file, mono, 8khz, etc.)

The wav file works on XPR series but if you are referring to APX radios, you need to run them through the voice conversion utility built into CPS

I'll add that since I made that video, I downloaded a program called GoldWave. I had a customer where I created 385 voice files. You put all the files to be converted in a single folder and it will run them as a batch process. If you have a lot to do, I'd recommend that versus Audacity. It is $45.00 beyond the trial period but it processed those 385 files in about 15 seconds where manually doing them in Audacity would have been 8 hours of work.
