I have had some luck getting a 151-159 split to receive in the ham band. I guess some rf boards will go further out than others. Check out this video on you tube I haven't had a lot of luck with this method. But I have only tried it to get a 450 split minitor into the 70cm ham band. It may be worth ...

Re: CM series ignores PL/DPL

when the setting is enabled the radio will be monitoring the channel in CSQ when the mic is not hung up. try grounding the clip on the back of the mic and see if your problem goes away. I will also see if I can find were in the cps the setting is. let me know what you find out

Can you tell us a little more about your problem? by ignore do you mean it does not unmute? or does it unmute for everything? perhaps it is monitor when mic off hook setting?

You can use the unofficial Waris labtool to blow in an HT1250 codeplug, but if you do I believe the radio will need to be retuned. you can also use global tuner to save the tuning data before blowing in a new code plug. Its a pretty good rule of thumb to back up the tuning data before you do anythi...

What frequencies are you trying to put into the radio? typically more than 10 mHz out of band won't happen. sounds like you are really in need of the "Q" split version which will do 403-470
