• 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.

XPR 6550 LTR Trunking

Hello RR World,
I've not posted before, and to be honest, I'm not quite sure if I'm posting in the right area or if it's been answered, but I really need some help on programming an 6550 to do LTR. I am a beginner and trying to trouble shot my way through this for work. First off, I am qualified to be joining the system, I do have the latest CPS and an approved Ribless cable. I installed the connect plus option board and registered the device.

I am moving my company over to a managed LTR system in our area and going away from our low band repeaters we have been using. I am not experienced at all in Motorola as I have been using Kenwoods for years. (Don't judge...just the way it's worked out for me).

As I am playing around on the CPS, I cannot figure out how in the world to add a trunked personality to this radio. Under the help menu, it reads so simply that I can right click on systems and add a trunked personality...not an option for me.

I'm just not sure where to go from here. Any help or direct is appreciated. I've scoured the internet for help on this specific topic, but no luck.

I really appreciate this forum and all the help I have seen around here...great community here!

Thanks in advance!
