• 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.

Motorola MTR3000 entitlement code issue

Does anyone has experience with programming a Motorola MTR2000 or 3000 repeater? I bought dynamic mixed mode for it, but I think I got the wrong part number as it is for the wrong region and I cannot get it to load on my repeater. I successfully register the EID (entitlement code) using the CPS 2.0. It will not activate though. I am in NA (North America). First does anyone have experience with this or know where I can find the proper part number. Motorola's website for ordering this stuff is not the easiest to use.

Thank you

The correct part number for Dynamic Mixed Mode EID for an MTR3000 in North America would be HKVN4044.

I've never tried to do an EID upgrade on an MTR2000 that was upgraded to Digital. If it's possible, I'm sure someone here will let you know if they've done it.

I haven't tried upgrading EID's on an older machine using CPS 2.0 There's a bunch of gotcha's involved in upgrading an older repeater & very few benefits beyond what you could get with CPS16 & R 02.09
