• 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.

Hi all,

I'm trying to setup my new XPR 5550e to work with the public address function of the siren in my first response vehicle. Basically, I want to be able to hit PTT and have my voice go out to PA speakers. So I don't have to keep two MICs in the car.

Going over the installation manually many times, page 34 (section 3-2) Rear Accessory Connector, I have no clue which of these pins should I use:

PIN-9 SPKR- Speaker - (3.2 ohm minimum impedance)
PIN-10 SPKR+ Speaker + (3.2 ohm minimum impedance)
PIN-13 AUX Audio 1 PUBLIC Address 1
PIN-15 AUX Audio 2 PUBLIC Address 2

And also, in CPS, there are two PA functions: Internal PA and External PA.

Has anyone done this before? Please share some insights. Thank you in advance.

It surprise me that no one here has any kind of info about this... Anyway, I spend some time calling the big M and received this unpublished document from tech support. Put up here just in case someone is looking for the same info.
