• 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 looked around and didn't find the answer to this if you use "ligit" cps to program 900 ham frequencies into a mts2000 do I have to worry about the toolproof error. My radio ver is 6.85. I want to make sure I don't make a paperweight out of my new radio. Thanks

You will nott be able to enter in the out of band ham frequencies - the cps software will not allow it
unless you have hex edited the band limits in the cps exacutable file.

I heard about the hex editing but my concern is the toolproof. if the software used is cps and not lab or depot will the radio be fine. I am not in the radio field and just want to make sure i dont mees anything up and i want to learn.

I just found out the answer that if RSS or CPS is used then the radio should not toolproof. Thanks for letting me ask the question. I was looking but always put a 900mhz on the search tag. Today I just put in mts2000 and found out what i needed. This is a great site.

Thanks Matt

On older Motorola software, if you held down the shift key and typed in the numbers it would work - 945.125 would look like ($%.!@% . Whether or not it works on an MTS2K I do not know.
