• 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.

CPS..."Image is corrupted..."

Using Motorola CPS for the CDM1550 mobile, I'm getting an EEPROM error (EEPRM CS ERROR) on the remote head display. When I read the radio through the main unit, it says "Image is corrupted, checksum for R/W region failed."

I should note the power to the radio was accidentally shut off in the middle of writing the codeplug...not by me I might add.

Anyone know how to fix this? The model number is AAM25KKF9DU6AN.

you have experienced the "do not disconnect power during writing, or your radio may become disabled" ride. i have heard of people just re-writing to the codeplug, and this correcting the problem, but have never been able to correct myself, being in the biz, we have sent out roughly, 20 units or so, to big M, and they have graciously reprogrammed them for $200. + each time. some of them were just out of warranty also, good samaritans. good luck.
just for the record, i have been lucky and never did one myself. knock on wood. hope i didn't just jinx myself, ooops.
