vx-4600 mobile out of band

Post by n3obl » Tue Apr 19, 2011 11:43 pm

Has anyone figured out how to mod the uhf 450-520 to go out of band for 440?

Cant seem to edit the codeplug file like on the vx4200 mobiles.

I have tried this for about a year and still no luck.

If you did find a way please share.

Thanks

OK, here's what I found... (now published at http://www.maxkelley.com/post/547)
Vertex CE115 Hack Notes
CE115.exe is located in C:\Vertex Standard\CE115\ and is used for the Vertex 4500/4600 mobiles and 450 portables. It has a number of “manufacturer” or “engineering” modes that allow access to fields in the programming software that are not normally accessible, which will allow changing of band limits (to allow out-of-band frequencies, such as amateur) and numerous other features and tweaks. Because of the nature of these fields, they can cause damage to your radio and serious degradation of performance. Do not use any of these engineering modes if you do not know what you’re getting into!

Command Line Switches:

/kaiha or –kaiha: This is manufacturer mode, and when successfully entered, will show a (M) after the program name in the title bar of the window. The password for this mode is “Kaihatsusha Senyou” (case-sensitive, no quotes, with the space).

/eng or –eng: This is engineering mode, password is “pasuwa-do”. Has less functionality available, but still allows changing the frequency bandsplit.

/siriaru or –siriaru: I’m not sure what the name of this mode is, but it displays an (SP) in the title bar of the program window. It seems to block out most (if not all) of the options in the Common > Hardware menu, and there doesn’t seem to be any features that are added… Password is “kanri bango”.

/ship or –ship: Again, not really sure of the name of this mode, other than “SHIP” mode (as shown in the titlebar. It must have some use in the factory… The password is “koujyou”.
Enjoy!

:grin: Confirmed working in the "Manufacturer Mode".
Thanks Max!!!

I tried 10 of the 4600 radios and all went flawless 440-512MHz with no loss of power rx sens.

I also did some of the VXD series but that's a little hairy!

More steps but it works.
