• 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.

Hello all my first post
I have a cm300d and a programming cable
And have tried a few versions of cps2.0
My question is when I try to read radio I get
#101005 code plug not supported
Is there a way to correlate a code plug to a software version
Model number is aamo1nh9c1a
Firmware r01.21.01.0000
Code plug 21.10.51
I am happy to pay for software I’m just a bit of a noob when it comes to these more modern radios
Local radio shop closed a couple months ago
So no local help
Thanks in advance for info

No, you cannot create a codeplug from scratch. If you are not getting the radio to read under the latest version of CPS2, try CPS16, as the earliest CM300d radios did work with that.

are you sure its a CM300d and not a CM300 ? The 300 used commercial programming software, not the mototrbo stuff. If it is a d model are you using latest CPS2 ?
