MT 2000 800mhz programming

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.

If it was working before you re-programmed it, it is possible that your programming did not take. Recommend reprogramming it using Chirp (available for free on Internet). Make sure your programming cable works and software is talking to the radio. If you downloaded the previous software program from the radio, make the appropriate changes and then upload.

If this is not working, please provide info about programming cable and software being used.

Good luck,

You must buy Motorola software from Motorola. Get a cable from them also. You also must have an FCC License to legally operate these radios. Your best best is to go through a dealer. The FCC License is quite hard to do without a dealer guiding you. It is easy to be ripped off and you must go through a coordinator. If not USA, still go through a dealer. The software and cable issue does not go away, ever.

I need Ce82 for free to program my VX2100, Please Help!!!!!


You also need a cable. It is a business band radio and you should have a shop or tech. Help you so you do not violate FCC Rules. It could be programmed for Ham use depending on the model. Last, you need a current CE82 version because if you get an older CE 82 version than the radio was programmed with last, it cannot be reprogrammed with the old software. Best regards

How difficult is it to change freq in a sph21dt 2 way radio? Isn't it a simple plug in to a programmer?


You have to go to a Uniden dealer. They have the software, and the cables to reprogram the radio. You could buy the software and cables yourself if Uniden has them for sale. I bought 2 Yaesu FT-2800M's with the programming software and CAT cable (the software and cable cost $30) and found it a delightful and easy way to program the radios.
Longshorts.

Motorola HT 1000 programming cable


Sorry to let you down, but the cable will only function with the appropriate Motorola software (and possibly a radio interface box (RIB) if the cable type you have requires one.) Software is only available to dealers. If you are needing reprogramming, it is generally available for between $25-$40 US.

Maxon sl100


Hello baba_zam,

The Maxon SL100 can be programmed but doing so requires a programming kit including software and a specialized cable. Unless you are going to be reprogramming a lot of units regularly, you are going to be best served by taking the unit into your local Maxon dealer and paying them to reprogram it for you.

Best Regards,
Ken
