Hey everyone, So, I recently picked up a Kenwood TK880. I've heard quite a few good things about these radios, however when I powered it up for the first time, it displayed Ver: 1.5209, beeped, then showed yyyyyyy From research, I learned this is likely a firmware issue in that it should be Ver2.xxxx as per the sticker, but was flashed to Ver 1.5xxx for passport use. Does anyone know how to obtain the FPro software and Ver2 firmware?
I just purchased a Kenwood TK-880 off of Ebay and a programming cable (BlueMax49ers FTDI USB Serial Cable). I installed KPG-60D for windows and I get an error when I attempt to communicate with the radio. I choose "Program" then "Read from Radio", and get error "Check radio type. Retry or Cancel". I verified the COM port. The radio shows "Program", but the software isn't getting past this message. On other forums I read that software KPG-49D is used for this radio. I downloaded the program but it won't install on my Windows 7 PC. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.
