DECODING MODEL NUMBER/FREQUENCY RANGE


This is the model number for a UHF Motorola CP185. Specifically, 16-Channel, 4W Model 435-480 MHz. The only way to determine the frequencies programmed into the radio is to have the radio read-out by an authorized Motorola dealer or other entity with a subscription to the software, as well as, a radio interface box (RIB) and appropriate cable.

Best regards.

I have a motorola cp185, is this radio capable of doing fleet sync I.d.


No. FleetSync is a feature of Kenwood radios. The CP185 does not have FleetSync capability, nor can we find any documentation saying it has Motorola's MDC1200 signalling. (Also note: FleetSync and MDC1200 are not compatible with one another.)

Best regards.

Motorola UHF CP185 Transmitter Frequency Error Adjustment


You can indeed adjust the frequency error on the CP185. You will need a very small (preferably ceramic, but you could get by with any) screwdriver. Use some alligator clips to power on the radio with the battery not attached to the back, and peel back the small circular metal sticker. Under it you will find a very sensitive potentiometer which you can adjust with your screwdriver, while transmitting, to fix the frequency error.

How do I know if my Motorola CP185 is UHF or VHF without taking it to a dealer for programming?


Hi christo,

Yes the serial No. usually indicates the frequency band the radio works on, but not always, because a lot of radios nowadays can operate on both VHF & UHF, so not being familiar with your model, I can't give you a definitive answer.

I do have the feeling, for what it's worth, that it is in fact a UHF band radio, but don't take that as gospel.

Anyone else reading this post is most welcome to assist in helping a friend out, we would much appreciate your input, thanks.

Hang in there my friend, there will be an answer soon.

Cheers, Peter

I'll look into it further as well....

How to enable all channels


The CP185 is dealer programmable for up to 16 channels. You would need to see an authorized Motorola dealer to have the radio reprogrammed to your additional FCC assigned frequencies.

Is the CP185 narrowband capable?


Yes. It is programmable to either wideband or narrowband on each channel. All current model VHF and UHF Motorola radios are narrowband capable.
