• 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.

Will this work?

I have a PRO-96 which won't do LTR trunking. Will it work if I simply program all of the frequencies in a particular LTR system in conventional (non-trunking) mode into my scanner?
Thanks in advance.

Definitely. However, you may miss parts of conversations that are switched to free repeaters, and you will have more difficulty trying to figure out who the various users are without TGID's. I did that for several months before I finally decided to get a new scanner, and I had over 30% of the users identified without TGID's.

If it's not a busy system it will work fine. It only switches to a free repeater if the home repeater is in use, and if it's not a busy system, chances are the home repeater won't be tied up. So, if it's a very busy system, it will be hard because of all the repeater switches.
