MCS2000 trunking back to analog


Prog Help


I picked a motolora mcs 2000 vhf for ham use and its prog for all the two meter rpt  freqs and rec's fine but the tx pulses when keyed, i think it was used in trunking Now i have prog these before but never had this prob.
I'm using cps ver 2.02.0 and a motorola rib and windows xp mach. So how do i get it out of trunking

did you check the power-supply? may be, you got a 50W radio and transmitting with high level is too much.
what ever, first have a try at low rf-power and check voltage at keying.
i forgot:  mcs2000 is no trunking, exept is has been flashed to in past and back….

thank you   Pete68

yes it is a high power and my shop PS is 20 amp and runs all my radios and camera sys outside.
When i keyed the transmitter the crow bar current protection was just starting to limit, and voltage was starting to fall off
Never thought off that happening

thank you

The 110watt  VHF MCS2000 draws approx 29amps at transmit
