• 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.

APX7000 Cloning Question

Not open for further replies.

I have a growing fleet of APX7000's at work and we have an agreement with the system owner that allows us to program the conventional channels of the radio and I don't diddle with the trunked stuff. The trunked system is protected with an ASK anyway...

I can read the radios, edit the conventional channels and features, then write the changes with no problems at all. What I can't do however is clone the radios. I presume this is due to the lack of an ASK.

Is there a way to set it up so I can read/edit/clone just the conventional channels and leave the trunked stuff as is or is it 'all or nothing'?

not clone, but drag and drop will do it just fine. what you do is open the CPS 2x. in one you open your "master" template, in the other you open the target radio. then in the master click and hold on your conventional personality and drag it over to the other radio and "drop" it. there is a tutorial in the software on how to do this.

i HIGHLY recommend you save the original archives of each radio before doing anything. i save them as Radio_X_original, then the change Radio_X_rev1, then rev2, etc.. this way should you accidently screw up a trunked zone(you can delete channels but not add/re-add them) you can simply back up to the original archive. later on once you are 100% positive everything works you can delete the original and keep only the most current archive.
