MCP2000 TPE Import

Kenwood's MCP-2000 software can be obtained at:

Before performing the import, please install the software if you do not have it already, and READ the data IN from your radio.

Once you have done that, please save it to a text file.  The default file name extension is ".2k0".  You will need to open this file in notepad or other text editor and copy the output from this tool into the "MEMORY DATA" file section.  Please note, if you have existing memories that you wish to keep, PASTE THE OUTPUT FROM THIS TOOL TO THE END OF THE EXISTING LIST!  I am not responsible for any lost memory settings due to the output of this tool being pasted in over top of the existing memories!

Remember, when working with your radio settings, always make a backup copy first!  Do all of your work in a different file.  That way if something goes wrong you can always revert back to where you started.  This is a good practice at all times, not just for this tool.

Once you have pasted the output from this tool into the file, save a copy, and open it in MCP-2000.  You can then WRITE this OUT to your TS-2000.  Once this write is completed, you will have the new memories saved to your radio.

At the bottom of the output window you will see three fields:

Initial records input: xxx
Records saved: xxx
Unable to process: xxx

The first line indicates the number of repeaters that you selected in the TravelPlus tool, RFinder, etc.  Due to a lack of normalized data being input into these databases, it is difficult to automatically parse them.  This leads us to the second line, which is the number that followed the rules and the script was able to automatically parse.  The third line shows the number of records that for whatever reason did not have the expected information to be able to be parsed (i.e. someone put in a repeater name in the frequency slot, or put in a web URL instead of a callsign, etc).  This number may be a large percentage of the repeaters that you selected.  I find it as frustrating as you do!  Sadly, I have no control over how they normalize the data in the TPE repositories.
