• 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.

Programmed up a mid power NON Astro Spectra, older radio was working fine. After programming the radio is stuck on TX. New one to me? Never had a problem before use to program up just fine.

Had the same thing happen on an XTL mobile once. Never could figure out the problem. I could read/write just fine, but once it was powered on, it would key up. If I remember correctly, it would key up before POST.

My guess is that the radio is stuck in emergency. Did you make sure the emergency jumper was in the accessory connector? The other place to look is in the software for activating the emergency option? You can make it non active in the software.

Just finished doing this. Interconnect board from radios head to main body. You have to remove the 2 screws on the control head to get to the interconnect board.
Take your your 6058's and 6066's and isolate pins 4,5,22,and 29. I just un-soldered them. To find these pins, look at your interconnect board while it is still in the radio after taking off the control head. They will be the pins at the top of the board, not to be confused with the lower black plug which the control head mates with.
Starting from the top row of pins at the very left which will be pin 1. As you get to pin 6 you will see that pin 7 is missing and then continues to pin 8 all the way to the far right which will be pin 19. Pin 20 starts at the bottom left bellow pin 1 and proceeds to the far right which will be pin 38.
You can cut the traces to each pin or just unsolder it and remove it like a bad tooth.
You now have an HLN6285.

I just did the mod and it worked like a charm, a viable radio I chucked a few days ago was rescued and is now is working great.
