    A related question for you guys programming 9000 series radios, the limited programming I've done has always been via the "Transmit Program Enable" internal bridge and then front panel programming. Works fine, just labour intensive pushing all those buttons and scrolling menus repetitively.

    The XP software users manual clearly states pin interface etc by radio model, a simple 3 wire arrangement but my question is this .................

    Does the Codan factory or aftermarket programming cable connect directly from PC > Radio or is there line level conversion or similar via chip embedded in the cable ?

    Direct connection, no level conversion required. Those $100+ ebay programming cables you see are a scam, nothing but a $5 serial cable with the plug cut off and a ~$20 SR30-10PF-7P(71) soldered on the end.

    Confirmed, knocked up a cable in 15 minutes as instructed, fired up XP and got a read / write on a 9323.

    One thing I never noticed in the past XP does not include 9390 model support ............. Ver 3.0 at least

    OK Gents after many hours of learning how to use hex editors and editing the very file above, reading every post etc, I can't get it to work....

    Editing seemed OK, MD5 correct, etc etc, I still get the above message : "could not open ISO config file TcvrOpt.config".

    Im not sure what Rassilon means about a dummy file, however....

    Anyone assist or send me a copy of correct X-3.exe file....

    TIA,

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Hey Rassilon....?

    Dont suppose you could have a look at the Codan NSP programming application for some similar access...? ;-)

    Cheers,

    Compilers have come a long way since then. Any modern compiler with optimization will not include unreachable code in the resulting binary without disabling optimizations. A quick poke with the hex editor revealed nothing of interest in the NSP executable. I did also remove the flash chip and read it out, but nothing obvious there either, possibly I has a bad read though as some bits seemed stuck (that programming adapter was pretty worn out). I have a few ideas on how to hack the NGT but I don't have the time or motivation anymore.

    I payed for option codes for my NGT, and really the cost was not so unreasonable.

    Thanks Rassilon,

    Personally, I don't have the expertise or time to do it either.

    Happy to pay for the option codes as required, but given the access available in the 9323 now, it's hard to justify....

    Cheers mate.
