STORING AND RELOADING OF RADIO TUNING DATA

by Moshe Nissim, Shmuel Marmari and Jacob Frender

  Radio tuning is performed at the factory as a for radio serial number '1234567890'). part ofthe manufacturing process. Each tuning data
suits only the tuned radio and cannot be used for The improvement gained by this idea is the abil- another radio. ity to save radio tuning information and restore it to the radio whenever needed.

  Whenever the radio requires reprogramming of its entire user data, commonly incorporated into a The necessity of saving the radio tuning infor- code plug, its tuning data has to be restored. mation appears when:

  By enhancing the capabilities ofMotorola's Radio Service Software it is now possible to read tuning data from the radio, store it onto a PC and to reload it whenever needed. The file name containing the tuning data is a unique name and includes the radio serial number.

  This RSS feature creates a unique tuning file name to every radio by concatenating the letter 'U' and the radio SERlAL NUMBER (e.g. 'U1234567.890

1. The radio logical part is damaged without any corruption ofits RF part.
2. The internal EEPROM is corrupted.
3. a subscriber upgrade has to be done.

Re-tuning the radio using this mechanism saves time, manpower and equipment.

The RSS screen which support getting and stor- ing tuning information should be as follows:
