Project Goals:

  • Create an application to backup and restore the radio using the in-built cloning port – 90% Complete
  • Probe the port and see if I can talk to it for the purpose of dumping firmware
  • Reprogram radio to support out of band ham frequencies to allow me to create a simple inexpensive radio for SKYWARN and ARES alerts… or you know, just fun shit like sending messages to a group. (radio uses SAME encoding which is well documented) Out of band not worth the effort, nor is getting hams to play with S.A.M.E.
  • Attempt dump and flashing of internal memory, possibly installing a teensy to allow flashing on demand and possible firmware modifications.
