  • Wouxun KG-805G and KG-805M programming and menu options

    Wouxun KG-805 Series Two Way RadioThe Wouxun KG-805 Series consists of high end, professional grade radios at a consumer level price. The KG-805G is the 5 watt GMRS version and the KG-805M is the 2 watt MURS model.

    Programming the KG-805
    Programming The Wouxun KG-805G and KG-805M is essentially the same. You can do it direct from the front panel keys of the radio or through a PC using the Wouxun KG-805 programming software.

    Direct from the radio
    Customizing the KG-805 directly from the radio itself is much like configuring most consumer grade FRS and GMRS walkie talkies, and is pretty straightforward. Press the MENU key on the radio, go through the various menu options, and choose the items you want to enable, change, disable or set. The only real difference is the feature set itself. There are the standard options you'll find on most other radios, and then there are a few fancier features that are unique to the 805 series.

    The KG-805 menu consists of 23 menu options. Default settings are bold.

    Menu # Menu Item Description Option
    01 SQL-LE Squelch level settings 0 (off)-9 (full)|5
    02 SAVE Power Save settings ON|OFF

    *Note: The menu item in red is available in the menu for display only. It can be modified through optional programming software.

    Wouxun KG-805 Series Radio Controls

    Programming with software
    The KG-805 uses the same standard USB programming cable used by many other popular Wouxun radios equipped with a Kenwood style (K1) connector port. In fact, if you already have a programming cable for an analog transciever such as a Baofeng UV-5R, TYT TH-UV88 or other Wouxun radio, chances are you're all set. If you don't, you will need the PCO-001 or XLT Painless Programming Cable. The XLT cable is highly recommended for ease of installation and peace of mind.

    Unlike the programming cable, the Wouxun KG-805 programming software is specific to the KG-805 radio series and is currently available for Windows PCs only. In addition to the software, code plugs are available for each model. These are the KG-805G software defaults code plug and KG-805M software defaults code plug, respectively. The software and code plugs are available as free downloads from Buy Two Way Radios.

    KG-805 Operation
    Working the KG-805G and KG-805M is exactly same, as both are essentially the same radio, only using different radio services.

    The audio accessory/programming cable jack is located on the right side of the radio on both models. The location of everything else is also the same, including the LCD display with a selectable three color backlight, channel knob, on/off volume knob and alarm button. The PTT (Push-To-Talk), PF1 and Monitor buttons are on the left side of the radio housing. Overall, all of the controls are where you would expect them to be.

    The controls and their primary functions are listed in the chart below:

    Control Operation
    Alarm/PF2 Activates alarm
    Channel Knob Changes channels and menu items
    On/Off Volume Knob Turns radio on and off - sets volume level
    PTT Push-To-Talk Transmit button
    PF1 Button Programmable button
    Monitor Button Opens squelch to monitor weak signals
    A/B Channel Scan - Hold 2 seconds
    MENU Enter program menu|choose/set menu option
    UP ARROW Select previous channel|Select menu option
    DOWN ARROW Select next channel|Select menu option
    EXIT Exit program menu/cancel

    As a portable handheld radio alone, the Wouxun KG-805G Series is a great value. As a GMRS or MURS radio, it can provide more power and versatility to the user experience at a more reasonable price.

  • Programming Motorola DLR Series Radios

    Motorola DLR Series Radio WIth AccessoriesOne of the questions we get asked most often is "How hard is it to program the settings I need into the Motorola DLR radios?" While we realize this can seem confusing to novice radio users, Motorola does offer a free CPS (customer programming software) that will make this process much easier. In this article, we will be giving you some tips on how to use this software to meet your needs. These same steps apply for both the DLR1020 and DLR1060 models.

    First, you will need to download the programming software from the DLR page at MotorolaSolutions.com. As already mentioned, this is a free download. Second, you will need to purchase the Motorola DLR series programming cable. Once you have these two things, you are ready to begin programming your Motorola DLR radios!

    Motorola DLR Series Programming SetupThe programming cable will communicate with your radio via the drop-in charger tray. Plug one end of the cable into your USB port on your computer, and the other end into the power connector on the back your charger. Make sure the radio is secure in the charger tray and turned ON. Also, be sure that the switch on the programming cable is set to the position marked Digital.

    Motorola DLR Series Programming Read RadioAt this point you should be able to access your programming software. Run the application, choose RADIO in the top column and select "DLR" as your radio type. If you would like to view the current settings of  your radio, click the option Read Radio. This will upload the current settings of the radio to the application. If you would like to begin customizing your radio based on the default settings, you can click New Profile.

    Motorola DLR Series Programming Basic SettingsThe screen that comes up will now give you the options to change your basic settings. These settings include options for setting the microphone gain, turning voice prompts on or off, setting volume levels, audible beeps, and selecting your "home" channel, just to name a few. This screen also has several options that you can choose to become part of your Advanced Settings, discussed in the next two paragraphs.

    Motorola DLR Series Programming Profile IDIn the top center of your screen, you will see a button labeled Switch to ADVANCED. These advanced settings offer several options, but the most commonly used is the Direct Call feature. This will give you the option to select and call an individual radio in your fleet, instead of transmitting to an entire group.

    This feature comes in handy when you want to have private conversations. For instance, if two supervisors need to discuss something privately, without employees hearing them, they would use Direct Call. In order to enable the Direct Call feature in your Basic Menu options, you need to first upload the unique “private” identification (12 digit) number of each radio. Click on the Switch to ADVANCED button. Under Privates (Advanced) tab, click Add for CPS to upload the radio ID. You can customize the radio ID name under the Name column. Once a radio ID is uploaded, the CPS will give the option to enable Direct Call. Customize your PROFILE ID Number for any 4 digit number different from “0000” to differentiate your radios in a radio fleet.

    Motorola DLR Series Programming Profile Save AsOnce you have changed all the settings, click Write to radio in order to program your radio with the new settings. The CPS will display a window confirming the writing (programming of your radio) is successful. You can also save your profile at any time in order to use the same settings when programming other radios by clicking on Save to profile. This will save the profile to the current default path in your computer. To specify a different path to save the profile, click on the Save As button.

    Your DLR radios are now programmed to your preferred settings, and you are ready to use them as needed! If you have any questions concerning the programming, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-584-1445, and one of our experts will be happy to assist. We thank you for choosing Buy Two Way Radios!

  • How to unlock and activate VFO mode on the TYT TH-UV88

    TYT has updated the TH-UV88 radios being shipped to the United States and VFO mode is now disabled out of the box. Normally, pressing the # key on the keypad switches between channel and VFO mode. On the new radios, this doesn't happen. Most likely this is TYTs way to ensure that radios being shipped into the country aren't able to be programmed to transmit outside of the amateur bands, the only frequencies for which they are authorized.

    It is understandable that TYT would want to restrict the radios to amateur frequencies, however it's not clear why they chose to accomplish this by disabling VFO mode. Fortunately there is an easy way to unlock the radios and re-enable VFO mode.

    1. Turn the TH-UV88 radio OFF.
    2. Hold down both the 1 and 7 keys.
    3. While holding down those keys, power the radio ON.
    4. After you hear the voice prompt "seven", release both keys.
    5. VFO mode is now enabled.

    This procedure does not directly switch the radio into VFO mode. It unlocks and restores the ability to switch between channel and VFO modes by pressing the # key.

  • How to unlock TYT DMR radios

    Locked TYT MD-2017With the recent uncertainty surrounding the FCC and import radios, TYT has made a decision to ship all of their radios locked down to the 150-160 MHz VHF and 450-460 MHz UHF ranges.

    They actually made these changes a few months ago, and at first "unlocking" the radios to allow use outside of these limited ranges required special unlock software. With the most recent firmware release, however, TYT has made the unlock process much more simple. All of their models can now be unlocked by holding down a key combination while powering on the radios. In this article, we'll show how to unlock the TYT MD-9600 mobile radio, and the MD-380, MD-390, MD-UV380 and MD-2017 handheld radios.

    Is your radio locked?

    Radios that are locked will display frequencies outside of the 150-160 MHz and 450-460 MHz range as 150.000 or 450.000 when the radio is in frequency mode. For example, if the channel on a locked radio is programmed for 147.300, the display will show 150.000. Once unlocked, the radio will show the correct frequency. A locked radio that has been programmed to frequencies outside of the locked range does not need to be reprogrammed. After being unlocked, the radio will work properly.

    A radio will always remember that it has been unlocked, even if the battery or power supply is removed.

    Unlocking the TYT MD-9600

    The TYT MD-9600 must be running firmware version 6.09 or higher to unlock using these steps. Prior versions will need special unlock software.

    • Power the radio on.
    • Remove all power to the radio. Note, you must remove vehicle or power supply power - you can't just turn off the radio with the power button.
    • Hold down the P1 and P2 buttons on the front of the radio.
    • Power up the radio while holding these buttons until the power on tone sounds.
    • No notification/confirmation is provided, but the radio is now unlocked.

    Unlocking the TYT MD-2017

    Unlocking the TYT MD-2017

    The TYT MD-2017 must be running firmware version 4.06 or higher to unlock using these steps. Prior versions will need special unlock software.

    • Turn the radio OFF.
    • On the side of the radio, hold down the top (blue) button and the UP arrow key.
    • Turn the radio ON while holding down these buttons.
    • No notification/confirmation is provided, but the radio is now unlocked.

    Unlocking the TYT MD-2017

    Unlocking the TYT MD-380, MD-390, and MD-UV380

    The TYT MD-380 or MD-390 must be running firmware version 14.07 or higher to unlock using these steps. The MD-UV380 requires version 18.03 or higher. Prior versions will need special unlock software.

    • Turn the radio OFF.
    • Hold down side buttons 1 and 2.
    • Turn the radio ON while holding down these buttons.
    • No notification/confirmation is provided, but the radio is now unlocked.

    Unlocking the TYT MD-2017

    Why did TYT do this?

    Great question, and one that we can't get a clear answer to. Based on our understanding of the FCC rules, TYT should be able to ship the radios as long as their supported range is within what is allowed on the grant from the FCC. For the MD-2017, for example, the grant shows 136-174 MHz and 406.1-480 MHz. I can only assume that this has been done out of an overabundance of caution. It would be understandable if they were unsure about how the FCC will be enforcing the rules, and don't want to take any risks at all. In the meantime, unfortunately, customers are confused and left with products that look to be defective, although they are actually operating as designed.

  • How to Program the Motorola DTR600 and DTR700 digital radios

    We’ve already done an introductory video on the Motorola DTR600, but we knew we needed something more. Now, we’re going to go more in depth and show you how to program the DTR600 and DTR700 digital radios using Motorola’s PMKN4154A programming cable (available in a kit as HKKN4027A) and free CPS PC programming software.

    In this video, we’ll install and setup the software, connect the radio to our laptop, read from the radio and create a profile in the software, create contacts and groups, write that profile back to the radio, and then we’ll go back discuss some of the features that are configurable using the software.

    The topics covered are listed below. You can watch the entire video or go to a specific section.

  • Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 Supported Frequencies

    CLS1410 In Programming ModeIf you're changing the frequency on your Motorola CLS series radio, you're going to quickly realize that the radio doesn't show you the actual frequency. Instead, it allows you to select a number between 1 and 56 that relates to a frequency. For example, if you need frequency 467.900, you'll want to select frequency number 7.

    To save you from having to dig through the CLS owner's manual, we've listed the frequencies along with their reference number in the chart below. This chart was intended for the Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410, but it also applies to other radios, including the Spirit M, GT, and S-Series.

  • How to Program the Motorola CLS1110 and CLS1410 Radios

    When checking the search history for the Buy Two Way Radios web site, it's fairly common to see searches similar to "How to program a CLS radio" or "How to change frequencies on a CLS radio". Well, today I decided to actually check those queries for myself and was surprised to find that we didn't have an article about it! Shame on us, but better late than never I suppose!

    In this article we're going to step through how to program a Motorola CLS1110 and a Motorola CLS1410 two way radio, but first let's quickly cover what "programming" means. Entering "Programming Mode" on the CLS series radios allows you to adjust the following:

    • The frequency assigned to each channel (from a list of 56 available frequencies).
    • The CTCSS/DCS code assigned to each channel. Also called a privacy or interference eliminator code.
    • The selected call tone, or activating the vibrate alert (CLS1410 only).
    • The microphone gain.
    • The channels scanned when scan is activated (CLS1410 only).
    • The number of channels supported (up to 4 - CLS1410 only).

    Each of these features is activated by first placing the radio in "programming mode" and then navigating to the setting in the menu that appears. Since most likely you're only here to find out how to change one of those settings above, I'll provide separate instructions for how to enter programming mode and how to change each setting. Let's get started!


    Placing the CLS Radio in Programming Mode

    • Be sure the radio is OFF.
    • Press and hold the Push to Talk (PTT) button and the MON button.
    • Turn the radio on while continuing to hold PTT and MON.
    • After 3 seconds, you should hear a tone and see a "PROG" icon on the display.

    Changing the Frequency

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • CLS1410 only: Select the channel number that you would like to change the frequency for. Immediately after entering programming mode, the channel number will flash and you can use the plus and minus keys to change it.
    • Press MENU until "FREQ" is displayed and the frequency number above it blinks. ("Frequency" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select the number of the frequency that you would like. Click here for the list of all CLS series frequencies. Click here for the CLS series default frequencies.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Changing the CTCSS/DCS Code

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • CLS1410 only: Select the channel number that you would like to change the frequency for. Immediately after entering programming mode, the channel number will flash and you can use the plus and minus keys to change it.
    • Press MENU until "CODE" is displayed and the frequency number above it blinks. ("Code" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select the number of the code that you would like. If you know the specific code that you need, refer page 56 in the manual for a cross reference.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Changing the Call Tone or Activating VibraCall

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until a blinking number appears with "CA" displayed to the right. ("Call Tones & Vibrate" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to select call tone 1-3. Call tones can be turned off by selecting "0" (this is the default). CLS1410 users can activate the vibrate alert feature (VibraCall) by selecting call tone 4.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Adjusting the Microphone Gain

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until a blinking number appears with "G" displayed to the right, along with a face profile icon. ("Mic Gain" example on the right.)
    • Press the plus or minus buttons to gain levels 1-3. Level 1 is the least sensitive, for loud environments, and level 3 is the most sensitive, for quiet environments. Level 2 is the default.
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Editing the Scan List (CLS1410 Only)

    • Enter "Programming Mode" using the instructions above.
    • Press MENU until an icon that looks similar to the letter "Z" appears at the bottom of the screen. ("Scan List" example on the right.)
    • The large blinking character to the left is the channel number, and the character to the right is a "y" or "n" to indicate if the channel is scanned ("y" is yes, "n" is no). Press the plus or minus buttons to select the channel, and the MON button to toggle between "y" or "n".
    • Press Push to Talk (PTT) to exit, or MENU to continue programming.

    Programming the KG-UV950P
    Programming The Wouxun KG-UV950P is the same as programming the KG-UV920P-A. You can do it direct from the console on the front panel of the radio, from the DTMF keypad on the speaker microphone, or through a PC using the Wouxun KG-UV950P programming software.

    Direct from the radio
    If you know how to program frequencies into the KG-UV920P-A, the UV950P will be old hat. If you haven't programmed a UV920P-A, or you are new to programming a two way radio, you will need to read the manual carefully and keep it with you for reference until you get the hang of it. The manual is not very intuitive, especially when explaining some advanced features, but it sure beats reading the original manufacturer's user guide for the Baofeng UV-5R, which is widely regarded in the ham radio community as one of the worst operating manuals ever written for an amateur radio of this century. While this latter point is not particularly inspiring, it may be of some consolation if you have trouble getting through the Wouxun manual. Compared to Baofeng, the Wouxun owner's manual is a literary masterpiece.

    The KG-UV950P menu consists of 50 items compared to the menu options of the KG-UV920P-A, which has 45 menu options. Default settings are bold.

    Programming with software
    The KG-UV950P uses the same USB programming cable as the KG-UV920P-A, so if you already have one, you are halfway there. If you don't, you will need the PCO-003, which includes the Wouxun cable driver and programming software CD when purchased from Buy Two Way Radios. Simply follow the Wouxun KG-UV920P-A cable driver installation instructions and the programming cable should be set to go.

    Unlike the programming cable, the Wouxun KG-UV950P programming software is specific to the radio and is currently available for Windows PCs only. If you have the programming software for the KG-UV920P-A, it will not work with the KG-UV950P. If you purchased the programming cable from Buy Two Way Radios, the KG-UV950P software will be included on the cable driver and programming software CD. It is also available as a free download.

    KG-UV950P Operation
    Working the KG-UV950P is almost exactly same as operating KG-UV920P-A. The only real difference is the layout of the console and redesign of the speaker microphone. While the key layout is the same on the consoles for both models, the location of the speaker mic jack is not. The speaker microphone plugs into the front of the KG-UV920P-A; on the KG-UV950P, the jack is located on the side of the front panel. The location of everything else on the front panel is the same. The LCD display with a selectable three color backlight, channel knobs, volume knob and DTMF keys, they are all there.

    As for the DTMF speaker mic, it is a noticeable redesign of the speaker mic for the KG-UV920P-A. The speaker microphone is shaped differently and a multi-function squelch open/remote control button is added below the PTT button on the left side. All the DTMF keys are there, and a MAIN key is added to change the master channel/frequency on the display. The keypad lock/unlock switch is resized and moved towards the top right of the keypad, and a second switch is added to turn the keypad backlight on and off. The 3 key assigned for CTCSS/DCS setup and scanning on the 920P-A is now assigned for band switching on the 950P. All other key assignments and operations are the same. The keys and their primary functions are listed in the chart below:

    Button Operation
    UP ARROW Select previous channel|Select menu option
    DOWN ARROW Select next channel|Select menu option
    MAIN Change master channel/frequency

    As a quad band radio alone, the Wouxun KG-UV950P is a great value. As a mobile/base station radio or cross-band repeater, it can add affordable versatility to any ham shack.
