• 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.

On my MTS2000 Model 1 radio, the volume knob seems to turn very easily and the radio will turn super low or super loud if it brushes up agains something. I have also had it where the radio will turn itself on if it is in my bag and gets moved. Anyone have any ideas of how I can tighten up the knob so this does not happen?

Thanks.

I had a couple of radios like this. I simply pushed the knob all the way down so the bottom of the knob rubbed against the top of the radio. While not very scientific, it created the tension I needed. GARY N4KVE

Although the volume pot is replaceable it is a real bear to do it
without damaging the flex cable, this is the assembly you need
to replace to make it easier and more practical to do. This is the
flex assembly with the vol & sq pots and switch. The shield assembly
is not included as part of the flex assembly - see below:

Thanks for the answers. I just pushed the knob down a little more and it works perfectly.
