    In order to program a trunking MCS2000, you will need either (a) to have the radio programmed by the system operator for your system or (b) a copy of the System Key file for that system installed on your computer. Generally, system operators do not give out copies of the System Key file.
    Should I really be surprised to see this incorrect information coming from RR and wannabe-admin RKG? This is the type of answer which discourages hobbyists from getting into Moto products. I hope RKG feels real good about himself, after playing the role of Motorola henchman.

    Here's the correct answer:

    - The System Key can be generated on your own, by using the instructions found on Batlabs.com: http://www.batlabs.com/syskey.html

    - The Motorola System Key Generator, released in 1989, is all over the Internet. Search for skeygen.zip or skeygen.exe. It's on even the most lamest of file-sharing websites. It runs on MS-DOS.

    Should the original poster (on RR) come across this thread, please be responsible and program your radio so it does not affiliate or transmit, on a trunked system. Instructions are here: http://www.p25.ca/threads/118-No-affiliate-trunked-scan

    Has anyone ever successfuly used the instructions found on Batabs.com? I followed the instructions to a T several years ago, and compared the hex of that file to the hex of a file created with skeygen. The two were radically different.

    The batlabs instructions do work. In the batlabs instructions you are editing just the sid whereas in SKG you are actually creating a new file with current datestamps etc.

    Apparently those idiots over there don't read their own forum.
