• 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.

Yes, the WARIS series programming cables will work on the CM series. Just make sure it’s an FTDI cable and not a Prolific. CDM, CM, M1225 radios use the same cable. Different CPS but the same cable.

Hello Gervais, you don’t say if it is a VHF or a UHF setup.

If it is VHF, you will need CPS # 05.16 as this is the latest CPS allowing you to program wide FM.
Motorola has restricted all CPS to narrow-FM to comply with the 2013 FCC rule.
You also can’t use a regular Motorola RJ-45 cable to program them.
Check this page for good info about this Commercial Series radio : The Motorola CM200, CM300 and PM400 (and similar) Mobile Radio Index page

I have a UHF CM200 in my shack, and I do have the right programming cable, you could borrow it the next time you come in town.
Let me know via a private message and i’m sure we can can coordinate something.
