    Default OOB codeplug for top display MT2000 hex edited to allow 440mhz ham band.

    Hello,

    I am in need of a code plug, for a top display MT2000, that has been hex edited to allow programming of the 440mhz ham band in addition to the normal frequency range.

    Thank you for your time,
    Dan

    I don't think a codeplug is going to do it for you, I think you will need to hex edit the RSS to go OOB. Instructions can be found here

    about 3/4 the way down the page.

    Follow the link provided and do it yourself. It's not that hard to do.

    There is also a good thread on how to hex edit.

    No luck with the hex editing.

    Radio is: 450-470
    Model # is: H01SDD9AA4AN
    RSS is: labrss 2.0 (would like to find newer version)

    Ihave hex edited the mtsx.odb file. I have changed all referencesof 450 in the ascii string(s) to 403. Replaced the original mtsx.odb file with the "new"jex editedfile. Rebooted computer and opened labrss. Went to change view in labrss to change/modify personalities. I still get the "Freauency out of range" error message.

    What am I missing?
    What am I doing wrong?
    This appears to be not as easy as people are claiming it to be.

    A friendof mine seems to think we have to actually modify to labrssitself. Is this true? if so, how is this accomplished?

    You need to look for a different version of RSS, labtool is a unstable package used internally at Motorola. RSS 6.08 is available to download in the downloads section of the forum as of right now.

    Most of the various "lab" tools are usually specific in their use, the old MTSX "lab" is only useful for forcing a codeplug into a radio blindly. Otherwise it's way too old for normal use. Many of those type of tools are brain-damaged or limited in function to only the "special" features so in general you should only use them for their specific function, then switch to regular RSS/CPS after the initial edit or whatever.

    Also we dont provide edits that are nessessarily supported by an Lab/depot. All edits posted are tested on the software they are designed for.

    Thanks to all who provided input.

    It turns out that LAB RSS is in appropriate for this applifation. As suggested, I used RSS V6.08, and low and behold, it lers me enter the frequenciesin the 440 ham band. I will report bqck my results once I get my ham stuff programed in. I already had a bunch of public safety programmed in.
