    1. Need help got Two MTP850 radio's, wanna program them for Direct mode, purchased a usb programming cable but can't connect to the radio's, it show's them being connected to the computer but seem's, like they need the driver any advice ???

    2. Hi Nokia man , can you help me by telling me what cps I need to program a sl1600 uhf ? And maybe a link to a southeast ham codeplug ?

      Cheers keep up the good work fella

    3. I'm now using Motorola XiR P3688, which is a MOTOTRBO, Analog & Digital radio. I set 12 analog channels and I don't have problems with them because analog channels are very easy to configure. However, when I add a digital channel, I am not sure how to configure the items like "MDC", "Group ID", "Group List" etc. These unfamiliar terms in digital mode drive me crazy. I end up having an invalid digital channel and receive a continuous "do-do" tone when I select that digital channel. (Undoubtedly I cannot transmit and receive in that digital channel). I know this MOTOTRBO CPS has a lot of features available for digital mode but I feel hard to properly configure a valid digital channel. Could you please help or please tape a tutorial video on this issue? Thanks.
