Re: Spectra Astro analog conversion

The Astro Spectra UHF RF board is not range specific except for Range 2 CEPT(low power Motorcycle) 430-470 which uses a coax connection to the VCO.
Range 1. 403-433 3. 450-485 4. 485-512 do not use that connection and it is not placed on the board.
so that gives you some options.

Re: Spectra (non astro) programming issues

The analog Spectra is fairly hard to kill
The 01/82 error is a checksum error normally fixed by reading the Codeplug and writing back without making any changes.
what are you using for your programming setup? processor, speed, OS, and does the computer have a real serial port?

this sounds like an accessory cable problem
open the connector and see if pin 4 switched B+ and pin 5 ignition sense are shorted together
they should not be and will cause the problem you describe if they are
since the radios work properly with the programming cable
