• 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.

I was programming my maxtrac's and since most all are the same I read the codeplug data, changed the frequencys and stuff, and plugged each one in and programmed data to each radio. They were all 5 pin logics... then i came across my 16 pin logic board radio (D33MJA7DA5CK). I plugged in my radio and programmed it. Then realizing i screwd up Because this was the 16 pin. The Radio turns on but nothing displays... I can still read and Program Data

How can I go about fixing it?

Easiest fix would be to take a code plug of the same model and dump into it. Check your files to see if you have an original from when you first programmed it. If for some reason your radio became a brick, they are very inexpensive on eBay.

Thats what I was thinking I would have to do

But I Fixed it. I figured out that when I loaded the 5 pin logic boards codeplug data into the 16 pin radio, it didnt work because it actually loaded the Logic data and not just the frequencys and such...

What I did was I blanked the Logic board and entered the correct data. It is now back to normal
It was an easy fix. took about 5 Minutes

Now i can reprogram my Frequencys

And hopefully you learned that you always back up your original codeplugs and keep them in a safe place.
