• 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, we just obtained several new XTS5000 and are licensed with CPS software Version R17 and am having HUGE issues. Can anyone help? I am in Nevada and need to try and get some normal frequencies programmed and it is gray and will not let us. Hell I do not even see a place for PL tones..... I am not a master programmer here and probably am dumb when it comes to the XTS 5000 but these are for search and rescue and I unfotunately have to try and program these and if anyone can help, I would be so much appreciated.

Which field are you looking at? You complete a conventional personality then enter the actual frequency information in the zone channel assignment area. Make sure you don't have the channel field set to trunked instead of conventional.

XTS5000 Help

Go to Conventional Configuration - General and make sure "Direct Frequency" is not checked.
