Question about Kenwood Radio Communications

1 Answer

Trying to reprogram a TK8180H-K but the screen says !Use SJ-180! when I try to read/write to it.

Im using KPG-96 to program the radio and the computer says there is a COM port error after the unit displays !Use SJ-180! . The COM ports have been set and the test function works so the COM poshowed the cable is fine. Should I be using KPG-89D? Or have the radio been locked out or something?

SOURCE: Having Trouble Receiving Through"TPL"

Are you sure that you are using the exact RX Frequency? is the radio in 25Khz if this radio is working on 12.5Khz with the IF filters changed to work in narrow band (12.5) could happend this.
Do you know if the repeater is on parameters mostly of the cases when an over modulation is received this will cut the PL modulation for short periods.
If the radio transmit over modulated could "erease" the PL modulation for short periods.
I think this radios should be checked all the Tune parameters to make sure is ajusted properly.

Good luck

The Radio you have is probably an older version, in this case you will need KPG56D. the other possibility is that the software you have is dos driven if this is the case then you will need to install the software on a slower machine with DOS 6.22. I use a pentium pro with windows 98 to program most of my kenwood radios. you will also have to disable any virus software and disable any TSR files on the machine in order to program the radio. The windows base programs don't have these quirks. take a look at your software and let me know what happens.

possibly a power supply problem - check current drawn from the power line compared with your other 2951. any disturbance in power supply voltages can kill the afc/pll in older service monitors. if you have the manual check the ps voltages

I recommend you **** can the USB cable and get a RIB and Rib cable. The GP300 Motorola software is available online for free (I can give you the web page address) and works just like the real Motorola software. I have programmed at least 20 GP300s with it with no issues. A RIB is the only way to go. Everyone has nothing but trouble with USB cables. Particularly with newer radios like the CP200.

SOURCE: unable to program tk-3207

hi, all i can think of is- A, the computer is way too fast for the program you are trying to run, what you need is a really old slow computer or B,

check the COM port settings on your computer.
click start, right click on my computer, click properties, then click on the hardware tab, then device manager.

then there will be a 'Ports COM &LPT' just make sure the com port number is the same one as you are using on the software. Hope this helps.

Join software group download yahoo


The software program is KPG-35D and you need a cable that is KPG-36. I can't help you with the software because it is copyrighted by Kenwood. You should try looking in the Yahoo Groups section for a programming group or Kenwood group. Many have found the road to enlightenment doing so (if you get what I mean).

I can't program a tk 2200l with my pc


Hi Gilbert,

Firstly, what operating system (OS) is your PC running on?

Check the Software disc for the OS that can be used on and version of the OS.

If this is incompatible, then that is what's causing the problem, also if your OS version is correct, you may not have all the drivers available for the software to run successfully, so you'll need to download these.

If this is not the problem, then you have a software problem on the disc itself, but that would be unlikely, as the disc is actually starting up OK.

Occasionally, the Software disc may have a defect, which may cause this, to find out if this is the problem, you need to download, or if your OS on your PC has a CD/DVD checking program, you can run this with your Software disc in the drive to check it for errors.

If errors are found, but not able to be fixed by the program, you will need to buy another copy of the software disc.

But there is another way of obtaining the required software, by downloading from the internet, and this is how to do it:

Join yahoo group specific to your radio Make/Model, the team there have a great deal of advice and info and you can download manuals, diagrams and software (if available) and other goodies for your radio, all of this is free.

I hope you found this information very useful.

Warm regards,
Peter

Kenwood radio TK270G


HI I'm seeing a different software number...
See: http://www.nielsoncom.com/kenwood/TK-270-370.pdf ( KPG-56D )
One thing you might try is programming off the front panel if "Field Programming" has been "enabled" in the software
See: http://www.repeater-builder.com/kenwood/field-programming-tk-x70.html it's slow coming up but interesting.

Is the transfer cable USB or 9 pin? I know I have had problems with laptops and had to go back to a desktop and it would work fine. I know some of my Motorola programs I have to use a old slower computer because the computer's speed. The new computers won't work with some of the older radio programs. I know my Yaesu VX-7 has the same problem with uploading, I'll get it out today and see what I did to fix it...
