Here goes. Yes, your Baofeng Ham radios could be programmed onto a business band channel. Yes, it could transmit. BUT, ham radios do not meet the stringent requirements that Business Band radios do. This refers to channel spacing, interference and a long list that Business radios are required to have to make operation legal. Therefore, your Baofeng makes a great scanner. Business band frequencies are to be used by radios meeting these stringent requirements in order to prevent interference. Failure to follow the FCC Rules could result in a hefty fine. Didn't you wonder about the price difference?

How to program a Motorola rdm2070d to a baofeng bf888s

The RMD has a set frequency list. Those are factory programmed and cannot be changed. Your baofeng can be reprogrammed to most frequencies.
Critical! First, make certain both are in the same band: Uhf or Vhf.
Make the list of frequencies you need both radios to use. If the RDM has it in the list, you are good to go! If it does not, and you must match the Bao, get a new radio. There are no mods or hacks for an RDM.

Hi Greg,

It would seem that your radio PC port is faulty and may need replacement.

Not a job to do if you've not done it before.

Take it in to your nearest radio technician to have a check-up.

If it's an expensive radio, any thing over $250.00, then it's worth having it done, if it's a cheapie, which I doubt, even a used radio of this type, is worth spending money on if it's working.

That's my advice for you.

How to clone a kenwood TK 3160

Ok. I have looked through the service manual for both the 2160 and 3160 and can not find anything that indicates that you can clone with just a cloning cable and not use software. However the 2170 and 3170 say to turn the power on While pressing the B button which yours doesn't have. Try turing on the radio while pressing any one of the side buttons.
Hope this helps.
P.S. The software is reasonably easy to get and IS much easier to use.. dan
