This tone indicates that there is a problem with the radio, I tried to find in the service manaual the meaning and just says " due to nature of fatal ROM and RAM errors it may not be possible to present an error code on the display, in there cases the radio will attempt to display the aproriate error code, generate an ellegal mode tone for one second and reset its Up." I hope this can help you

Mtx 9000

The MTX9000 is dealer programmable using Motorola proprietary software. Generally you can have an MTX programmed for between $25-$40 US. You will need to provide the frequencies you are needing in the radio to the dealer, or bring a radio you are wanting to match with you.

Rpoggromming an mtx 8000

The MTX8000 radio is programmable using a the appropriate cable, RIB (radio interface box), and Motorola RSS (radio service software). The hardware you can purchase through a Motorola dealer or an online auction site. The software is by subscription, and is owned by Motorola. (There are a few pirated versions around, but not necessarily stable.) They are pretty tight about who has access to it. You might check with your employer to see how they had the units programmed previously. The frequency which is currently them is most-likely licensed to them through the FCC.

Working codeplug for MTz 8000

Only from Motorola or a Motorola Service Center. The radio requires all programming to be either programmed by a motorola dealer or by the owner of the the trunking system if they own the software for thier system.
