I got this radio in today and have found the software is a pain in the rear. So I have a few questions:

#1

This radio has 2 lines of text so is it possible to do this:

BRECK FIRE
PRIMARY 1

or am I stuck with

Ch-01
BRECK FIRE

#2:

How do you set the radio up to page and how do you get the MDC to only do EOT encode only.

Exclamation

You are stuck with

ex.
ch-01
FIRE 1

You need to go the the MDC1200 Menu
Go to General Turn MDC on and enter your ID

Then go to PTT ID
Turn RX on and TX ON and select PTTID UP-That should be set to enable
DONE.
Dont forget in the general programming to turn MDC1200 on the chan. you want it on

What Type of paging do you want to do?

I also am looking for help with the ICOM cloning software, CS-F3160/F5060, a F6061 radio I purchased off Ebay or the radio's firmware.

I purchased a F5060, the ICOM cloning software (ver 4.1) and the ICOM cloning cable OPC-1122U (all ICOM original, no clones) in 2011. I am able to program that radio. I recently purchased a F6061 radio on Ebay. I am able to read the radio information using the Clone/Information pull down menu:

Serial Number: ###########
Model : LMR
IC-F5060 Series
Revision : 2.9
Sum : $59B9
Comment : REV 2.9.1

When i attempt to read the radio using the Clone/ Read < - TR pull down menu it downloads the data and then gives an Illegal Data Error at the end.

I have also checked the firmware at startup using P0 and P3 pressed at startup; I get:
REV 2.9.1
Sum59B9

Any thoughts or suggestions

ICOM's techs say I need to find an older version of their cloning software F3161/F5061 EMDC 2.7.1. I would suppose that if uploaded a more recent version of firmware I could use my existing version 4.1 software but I don't want to lose my wide banded capability since I want to use it for Ham and GMRS.

Any comments for help would be appreciated.

Contrary to what has been propagated in these forums, you are not going to lose the wideband capability by upgrading the FW to 5.3. ALL my 5061, 6061, 4161, and 4261 radios are running FW5.3 and they all have FM wideband enabled

The only issue I had when I got the 4261 radios was that they were forced to FM narrowband and could not enable it in the programming software; however, I sent it to my dealer and FM wideband was enabled for me in order to use them in the amateur bands
