• 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,
Upgraded some XTL 2500's in fleet. When setting the menu items for the 5 soft keys experiencing problems. Menu items are scrambling around on their own after codeplug install or not showing up at all. Programmed the same as the other ones in use, not sure what is happening.
Any Thoughts?
Thank you........
David

Only those menu items that are applicable to the selected channel appear, and different menu arrays will alter the arrangement of the items. (For instance, if you have a menu item for "Phone," it will appear only if the selected channel is phone enabled and disappear if the selected channel is not phone enabled.)

XTL programming

Thank you that makes sense. With some minor adjustments I have gotten the menus I wanted to work.
