Question about Motorola HT1000, MTS2000, MTX8000/9000 Compatible 2 Way Radio Battery Eliminator
I have an 800mhz MT 2000 that I would like to reprogram. I have the cable enroute and have began searching for software, tips and tricks. Well, I was looking at the owners paperwork and it says that RSS programming is available for the UHF/VHF models. What about the 800 mhz models? Then where do you get the software for programming? Also, somewhere I read that you can't use a computer with any Windows influence whatsoever to use the program. Is this true? How do you run a DOS program without any windows influence? Do I have to find a decades old computer?
In our shop we use an old 386 computer to run the MT2000 software. You must use a computer which is of the same era as the radio. If you visit your local radio shop you will see their programming area crowded with various computers for this very reason.
Depending on the cable you have, you may need the RIB (radio interface box) also. Software is Motorola proprietary, as vrc_tech stated. Dealers subscribe to the software, paying a fee for 3 years of use. It has been known for this software to be available in pirated versions on the internet, however, these are not always stable and can cause issues with your radio. So beware of wolves in sheeps clothing. The best recommendation is to have them reprogrammed by a dealer.

The 800MHz MT2000 software can only be purchased from Motorola and you can not purchase it unless you are the owner of the 800MHz Site or a Motorola Dealler that sales system radios. Your Local motorola dealer will program the radio for you but you must have written permission from whom ever is in charge of that system.
