Wanted MCS2000 CPS
Motorola MCS2000 CPS
I am in need of a copy of the latest Motorola MCS2000 CPS for download. I have one of these beasts (25W VHF) from the Tailgate HAM Swap-Meet for an incredible price ($ 20). It came brick and face plate only, no speaker, no mike, no power supply nor even the cord or belly connector. I managed to adapt another Motorola mike for it and I found a belly connector for the speaker and Ignition power, I've got a power connector and I made this baby power up connecting it to my backup battery in the radio shack. I bought a FTDI cable, made it work on my old laptop, but the only CPS I have are for either SPECTRA or XTS3000. The SPECTRA CPS reads the codeplug from the radio but has an error" Unsupported model", although MCS2000 hardwarewise is a dumbed-down analog only SPECTRA, at least this is what I was told. This particular baby is VHF 120 - 178 MHz analog, that means I can put in not only my provincial HAM repeaters, but the logging road channels, which is very useful when going back country. And the summer is coming!
