• 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 these 2 radios that I am using and since I got them been using CPS 16.0 828 to program them on Windows 10. And my question is, if something happens to this computer and I can no longer use it to program these radios on CPS 16.0, is there a way I can get them to read and write on 2.0.

What do I have to do so I can still read and write to them if my only option would be 2.0

Let me know

Thanks

These radios only read and write on CPS 16.0

And how do you update the firmware if it comes to that on those radios, never did that before. Is it somewhere on the software.

And after that they will read and write on 2.0

IF you register with Motorola for a free account. You can find the firmware in Entitlements and software in MyView once you get permission you download it and unzip it then click on Update on the CPS once the box opens you click on the version to update to

Don't update to anything past 2.09. CPS2 sucks, don't use it if you don't have to.

Ok my 6550 portable firmware version is: R01.11.21 and CP VER: 12.03.00

On my 4550 VHF, the Firmware version is: R01.11.02 and CP VER: 12.00.08

So with this info, is it possible to update these 2 radios to work on 2.0
