Cleartone CM6000

Postby StormShadow » 26 Nov 2013, 12:57

Hi Just picked up a couple of old Cleartone CM6000 from work. They are both VHF one has a keypad and the other one doesn't.

I had a look online and found a few threads but nothing all that too helpful.

By looking inside these radios it looks like they may be software defined? Can they be reprogrammed via the keypad? I'd like to get both these radios onto 2 meters if possible not sure of the frequency range of these radios?

Where could I download the programming software?

I'm going to look for the manual online tonight.

Cheers

I know the CM7000 can be programmed by the keypad but I am not sure the 6000 can.
If they are the same chassis then this may help

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/225 ... manual.pdf

I have an older CM6500 on uhf which is programmable by the keypad
I will describe the method in case it is the same unit as yours.

There is a row of long stiff wire pins next to the processor and you have to link pin1 to pin11
on some radios these pins are linked to the mic socket on pin1 and the last pin of the mic socket (pin8?)
Anyway with the radio powered off link the two pins

Then turn the radio on and press P.pri followed by 10
The radio is now in program mode

Enter the following
1 Receive Frequency AAAAAA 6 digits
2 Simplex/half duplex enter 0 for simplex or 8 for duplex
3 Transmitter operation code for normal tx & rx 0 for rx only 4
4 RX CTCSS Tone two digits ( see list for numbers)
5 TX CTCSS Tone two digits (see list for numbers)
6 Transmit Frequency ZZZZZZ 6 digits
7 Press Enter on keypad
8 Enter channel number to store to

here is an example
145725 8 0 13 13 145125 ENTER 1
Would store GB3VT in memory 1

CTCSS tones
00 no tone
01 67.0Hz
02 71.9Hz
03 74.4Hz
04 77.0Hz
05 79.9Hz
06 82.5Hz
07 85.4Hz
08 88.5Hz
09 91.4Hz
10 94.8Hz
11 97.4Hz
12 100.0Hz
13 103.5HZ
14 107.2Hz
15 110.9Hz
16 114.8Hz
17 118.8Hz
18 123.0Hz
19 127.2Hz
20 131.8Hz
21 136.5Hz
22 141.3Hz
23 146.2Hz
24 151.4Hz
25 156.7Hz
26 162.2Hz
27 167.9Hz
28 173.8Hz
29 179.9Hz
30 186.2Hz
31 192.8Hz
32 203.5Hz
33 210.7Hz
34 218.1Hz
35 225.7Hz
36 233.6Hz
37 241.8Hz

-----------------------------------------
In my radio there are 10 channels yours may have 16 channels
but if its the same chassis the programming should be the same.

You may have to tweak the local oscillator to get the pll synth to lock
I had to on mine but mine is a 70cms version.
And again you may have to tweak the receive and transmit stages for maximun sensitivity and output power.
If you don't have the correct test equipment to tune up the radio find a local ham who has and is willing to tune up for you.

I hope this helps you to get them up and running on hamradio.
Cheers Mark

CM6000 VHF with keypad is programmed exactly the same - I used to use them many years ago.

I'm sure stormshadow will have it up and running then in no time.
It is difficult sometimes to find info on older radios
So i will mark my notes to say the cm6000 is the same as mine
cheers Mark
