• 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.

Hello,

I'm new to radio maintenance. I have a Motorola XPR 7550e that when it turns out, it flashes "out of range" and has a none stop steady almost like two radios stepping on each other. I also can't change the channels, zones, etc. I tried swapping out the antennas with no luck. I wanted to see if I could fix this before sending it out to the vendor. Than you!

What's it programmed for? What are you trying to accomplish? Have you tried to write a new codeplug? Have you verified the info in the codeplug is correct?

It's simple, you're out of range of the whatever system it's programmed for or somebody screwed up something in the programming.

It could be that you are running CapPlus or LCP and have a radio ID higher than 65xxx. What is the radio ID, when did symptoms start, etc? TT
