• 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 recently picked up an XTS-5000R model-2 700/800 with the following info:

Model: H18UCF9PW6AN
Flash: 5000080004864

I know it is digital P25 but the CPS seems old. I do the system test and it reads:version and DVP 7.00.01
I have CPS up to the new version 16 (I also have some older versions) so can I read and write to this radio with this new of CPS? I just dont want to brick this radio. It also has a secure mode on the concentric switch (screen shows the secure symbol when selected). Can I assume DVP (or some other secure mode) is installed?

Thanks,

Mike

I bet what it said was DSP 7.00.01, not DVP. That number represents the firmware and DSP software versions installed in the radio. 7 is crazy old, the current is 16, so I would get that upgraded.

If you look at the flashcode, you'll see that it has ADP software encryption installed. This doesn't need a UCM, and I bet that's what it is using, since the radio doesn't have the Hardware Multikey option installed in the flashcode.
