Default CS700 to MD380 Plug Convertor

Just got my shiny new MD380 and I'm curious if there is a plug convertor to create a plug for my 380? I have built a pretty extensive 700 plug over the last 1 1/2 years......and hope there is a convertor.....

Thanks, Andy

Well, the Hex Editor did the trick! I was able to convert my 700 plug to a 380 with no observed ill effects....... good luck!

Wish I'd seen this before I spent hours building a codeplug for my shiny new MD-380 instead of using one of the many CS-700 codeplugs already out there and making modifications.

Of course, the local DMR repeater is just far enough from home that I can't get into it reliably from the house with a portable, even upstairs. Worked like a charm when mobile a few miles north of the house. Guess I need to cobble together a UHF antenna to hang from the ceiling for the thing.

Sigh.

I don't use the conversion feature, but I do like the sorting ability. It might be of some help you and others in this thread.
