• 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 Motorola CPS and Cable I have 15 CDM1250 radios to program the same how do I write this info once and install in all 15 radios. If I read radio and save it won't let me write to another radio because serial numbers don't match. I must be missing some thing

Could you be missing the cloning cable to clone the programing to each radio.

There is no cloning cable for the CDM radios. Some portables can be cloned, but not these mobiles.

It is well documented here in many previous threads here on RR about the Professional Series (and on the batboard) that you can only write to multiple Pro Series radios if they are all the EXACT same model number. Serial number doesn't matter if the model numbers are identical. I have three identical CDM1550LS+'s in my inventory. I work on one codeplug and then shoot it into all three radios, no problem.

If you have different model numbers, you are stuck with updating multiple codeplugs.

If your CPS is not HVN9025 Professional Series, then no matter what you do, it won't work.

You also need to verify that your version of the CPS is at least as new as any of your radio's current programming. You can't go backwards, programming a radio with an older version of the CPS than it was last programmed with.
