I bought this radio some time ago for weather alerts but no longer use it. It is on the chopping block and I've got a few plans for this little guy.
- Create an application to backup and restore the radio using the in-built cloning port
- 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)
- Attempt dump and flashing of internal memory, possibly installing a teensy to allow flashing on demand and possible firmware modifications.
