Bearcom BC-120 Programming

Postby Fratolicious » Fri Sep 26, 2014 6:58 am

Good Morning,

I am new to the Batboard and appreciate any help that I can receive. I have searched the forum but have not found a clear answer to this question.

I recently took in about 30 BC-120 UHF Portables on a recent transaction. I have been professionally working in the Two-Way field since 1995 so I have quite a bit of programming knowledge but this has me aggravated to no end. Here is what I DO know:

1. These are Bearcom's Private labeled BC-120 UHF portables that are in fact the same radio as the CP125.

2. I have confirmed with Technical Support that the Programming software to use is the Business CPS software.

3. I have confirmed with Technical Support that the Programming Cable is a single prong #DSK001C706B

4. I have attempted to use different PC's, Different radios, and even Entry Level software that was posted in an old thread with no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully now that I am registered I can assist fellow members in the future. Thanks!

You really didn't say the problem. You can't read the radio? Is there error messages involved? Tried different OSes? Is it a known good cable?

I have done a few BC-120 portables; you are using the right software but the issue I found is some programming cables I needed to hold and push in the 3.5 mm jack into the radio while reading/writing to get it to work.

Edit: Oh wait? Business Level CPS? Entry Level Business I hope...

Sorry for the late response. After having the proper cable and software that I mentioned above it does nothing. Will not read or Write. I get "Read radio Failed". I have attempted this on multiple computers, and multiple radios.

Just to re-confirm: I'm using CPS 1.07 that was purchased directly from Motorola. I'm also using an original cable from Motorola #DSK001C706B

I'll tell ya, I'm at a total loss. Does the radio need to be put into a programming mode like the BPR40?

Again, any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Note: I attempted the push hard method on several units to no avail.

Bear com has its own software for the bc-120. The normal bpr-40 software will not work.
