    Default MTS2000 ASK Removal for Latest Firmware 8.73

    Here are the details for removing the ASK from the final firmware version of 8.73

    The ASK Flag can be found in the most significant bit of 0x282. Make sure to update checksum at 0x289. In my case the byte was 80. So it became 00. And the checksum was 14, subtract 80 and it became 94.

    I wrote a quick .Net/C# program to take care of the programming for a batch of B5 radios had for $5 a piece on eBay. Many thanks to Mars and the Python scripts written by Paul Banks.

    Communications log. (Adjust your values accordingly in bold.)

    Sending 00 00 01 08 7C

    If I get around to it, I'll publish something on GitHub that finds Block 0x31, reads the existing values and adjusts automatically. Best laid plans I hope to get back around to!

    I have 5 model H01UCH6PW1BN radios

    800 MHZ model III keypad

    I looked at the location and there is all zeros, but I am getting the error when I try to write the updated codeplug, saying it needs the ASK

    Codeplug ver 000F
    Firmware 08.73
    H37
    flash code 200004-000000-2
    and flashcode 000004-000000-6

    I can send you the cfg files, if you want to take a look and see why these are different from the ones you have

    Thanks

    Bill

    I can dust of the program and send it to you. If anything it will read a raw copy and save an non-encrypted file that I can further look at. Curios to see what you have. I'll post a link tomorrow that you can try.

    I have not received any file, if you sent it, it never made it to me.

    Please resend.

    Thanks

    Yeah, radicalbill, here's how not to make friends here. Post questions and requests here and elsewhere, get an answer elsewhere, and post here asking why you didn't get an answer. Nonsense.
