• 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.

Ok today I way trying to put two encryption keys in my radio and it did not work. In my buddy's radio I put the key me and him would be using and a I already have a key in mine that me and my other friend use so in where key 2 goes I put the other key in. Than I went in to the personality and selected key 2 but my buddy's radio could not pick up mine because of different keys I tried putting the keys in a few time to make sure I had right ones and still did not work it only work it only worked when I put same key in key one and two it works anyone have any ideas.
Thanks in advance,

When programming ADP it is imperitive that not only the Key Data match but the Key ID as well.

If the Key ID's are different the radios won't know which proper Key Data to select.

What seems to has happend is as follows:
A Radio:
  • Key 1 = 1234567890

B Radio (your radio):
  • Key 1 = 1234567890
  • Key 2 = 0987654321

C Radio:
  • Key 1 = 0987654321

The Key ID part would need to match properly. Setting the Key ID for your second buddies radio to be 0002 or whatever ID your using should fix the issue.
