• 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 have an ht1250 that had error code EEPROM HW ERROR i sent the radio in and is now fixed and radio is programmed.

It seems like the radio isn't recieving properly Some channels i get just the base radios others i get just the vehicle traffic but not the dispatcher traffic where i had in the past. Programming is all right i wasnt sure it something could of happened with that error code? The radio does have a shorty anntena.

Wasnt sure it there is something i could check or do?

Thanks for your input
Nick

The error message meant that the radio was detecting a checksum error on the codeplug, which was corrupted when you sent the radio to Depot.

Suggest you re-write your archive of the correct codeplug back into the radio.

Unlike some other products, the HT1250/CDM CPS does not mask for radio serial number on a write. So if you have an archive file for another HT1250 that has exactly the same model number and feature set, you should be able to write that to your radio. If it works, then read the radio, archive the read, and start editing.
