Re: Modifying Low Band CDM1550 onto 10m 29 MHz

I've done several CDMs and HT's to 10m FM, all with old school hex mods. Real PIA, but it works and you don't have to modify your CPS when you are done, and can pass the radio along to others who can still program it. None of them required any alignment after the fact, but I only opened it to 29 MHz...

IF you can get /\/\ to agree to rebuild/change bands/whatever you want to call it - likely you could have bought a proper radio for the same cost and time investment. And no, the software options are specific to the hardware.

You can do what Otaku suggests, or you could write in a "R" split file into the radio and choose application only when you write it in. Your tuning values will be unchanged, as they are stored in a different place that doesn't get written. If you stick to the 440 range, it should perform j...
