Cloning a Radio
Perform the following steps to copy the configuration of a Radio to another Radio of the same model. During the clone operation, a dialog is shown for the user to provide the Radio Identity parameters of the target Radio.

#Prerequisites:
Ensure that the target Radio is turned off before attaching a Programming Cable (PMKN4128A). 

#Procedure:
1). Open the source codeplug archive by clicking the Open button in the Actions bar. The user can also read the data from a Radio. Read More: Reading Data from a Radio using Customer Programming Software (CPS 2.0).
2). Using a Programming Cable, connect the target Radio (XiR P3688) to the USB port of the PC.
3). Power up the destination Radio by pressing the On/Off button or turning the volume knob.
4). Wait a few seconds after connecting the Radio to allow time for the PC to detect the Radio.
5). Clone data to the device, by performing one of the following actions:
  • On the menu, select DeviceClone.
  • Pressing CTRL + F3.
  • Click the Clone button in the Actions Bar.
The Connected Devices dialog box appears for the user to select the target radio. The Connected Devices dialog box only lists connected radios that are of a different serial number than what is in the source archive file and are of a similar radio model.

6). Select the target Radio to be cloned.
7). Click the Clone button at the bottom of the dialog. The Clone Radio dialog box appears for the user to modify the Radio Identity parameters from the source archive file.

8). Click OK.

The Radio Identity parameters specified and the parameters in the source codeplug are combined and into the Radio. A progress bar appears as data is cloned into the Radio. If the clone operation is successful, the progress bar disappears and a window appears to indicate that the clone operation completed. The Radio is cloned. If the Radio is locked or disabled, the Radio is now enabled. For repeaters, the retries to zero for locking are also reset if the retries have reached its maximum limit. Customer Programming Software (CPS) 2.0 programs the first channel in the zone to be the default channel.


Express Cloning a Radio

Express cloning allows you to copy the configuration of a Radio to another Radio of the same model. This operation takes the source codeplug parameters and combines them with the Radio Identity parameters already programmed in the target device. The combined codeplug is then cloned into the target Radio.

1). Clone data to the target device, by performing one of the following actions:
  • On the menu, select DeviceClone Express.
  • Pressing CTRL + F4.
  • Clicking the Clone Express button in the Actions Bar.
The Connected Devices dialog box appears for the user to select the target device. The Connected Devices dialog box lists only the connected devices that are of a different serial number than what is in the source archive file and devices that are of a similar model as the model of the source codeplug.

2). Select the target Radio to be cloned.
3). Click the Clone button at the bottom of the dialog box.

A progress bar appears providing status as the Radio Identity parameters are read out of the target device, merged with the source archive file and the merged codeplug is cloned into the target Radio. If the clone operation is successful, the progress bar disappears and a window appears to indicate that the clone operation completed. The Radio is cloned. If the Radio is locked or disabled, the Radio is now enabled. For repeaters, the retries to zero for locking are also reset if the retries have reached its maximum limit. Customer Programming Software (CPS) 2.0 programs the first channel in the zone to be the default channel.
