I have a TK-3170 that was improperly written with the European (E) version firmware instead of the American K version. In order to re-write the firmware to the American K version the radio must first be programmed with the KPG-101D software, with the option to re-write firmware ENABLED. I have 4 different versions of KPG-101D and no matter what I do I cannot get the KPG-101D software to allow me to change the "Radio Model" from a TK-3170K to a TK-3170(E) model. In fact none of the (E) options are even listed.

Even though everything I read about the KPG-101D indicates that it will program all versions (E, K & M) of the TK-3170, none of my software will allow me to start building frequency a database as a TK-3170(E).

Anyone with knowledge on how to get the TK-101D to allow me to switch the "Radio Model" to (E) version would be greatly appreciated. Once I do this, I will be able to re-write the firmware to change it back to the American K version.

Thanks,
Matt

Actually, I just figured it out. The latest version of KPG-101D that I have is 2.40; however, I had to obtain a European serial number for the KPG-101D in order to unlock the E and M versions hidden within the software. The four serial numbers that I had only allowed the software to open in US-K
mode.

Once I did that I was able to write an E data file to the radio with the Firmware enabled. From their I loaded the latest K version of the Firmware and programed the radio to match my others TK-3170s.

Thanks for the reply thought. I will leave this thread on here in the event that somebody else runs into the same problem that I had. Nowhere else on the internet did I see that the serial number of the KPG software dictates what version of radios you can program.
