Introduction
The KAA0701 Cloning Cable offers radio users to ability to share
programmed information between KNG portable radios and/or other BK
Radio models.
Clonable BK Radio legacy radios include DPH, DPHX and DPH-CMD
digital portables and DMH digital mobiles. Compatible analog models
include GPH Plus, GPH-CMD, EMH and most standard GPH radios.
Operation
The Source radio is a radio programmed with the desired radio frequencies
and settings you wish to transfer to another radio of the same frequency
range.
In order to clone radio information the Source radio must have a menu
item programmed, via PC Radio Editor LAA0730, to allow cloning. (Refer
to the “Menus/Controls” section of the radio editor.)
The radio receiving the program is referred to as the Target.
Target radios can be programmed to block incoming cloning information
on a zone by zone basis.
The KAA0701 Cloning Cable requires the use of a KNG model as either
the Source or Target radio.
KNG to KNG Cloning
KNG radios allow for three cloning options: Active Zone, Zone-to-Zone or
entire radio.
Active Zone - Copies the information in the Source radio’s active zone to
the Target radio’s active zone.
Zone-to-Zone - Allows for selection of any zone in the source radio to be
copied into any non-blocked zone in the Target radio.
Entire Radio - Copies all non radio specific data from the Source radio
to the Target radio. Radio specific data includes P25 ID, serial number,
encryption keys and passwords.
NOTE: Radios programmed with any zones blocked from receiving
cloning information will not accept an “Entire Radio” clone.

Zone-to-Zone Cloning Information
Cloned zone information includes:
Channel and Zone Labels
Bandwidth
Frequencies
Low Power Selection
Operating Modes
ANI Settings
Code Guards (CG)*
Zone Priority Settings
Network Access Codes (NAC)*
Zone Scan List Selection
Squelch Operation
Security Settings
Talk Groups*
OTAR Channel
Scan List
*If picklist selections are assigned in the source radio, the associated
value will be cloned to the target radio. For instance, if a channel has a
picklist selected NAC whose value is $123, then $123 will be sent to the
target radio. The target radio picklists will not be affected.
Entire Radio Cloning Information
When “Entire Radio” is selected from the cloning menu, information
from the all zones is sent to the corresponding zones of the radio being
cloned.
NOTE: Radios programmed with any zones blocked from receiving cloning
information will not accept an “Entire Radio” clone.
Entire Radio cloning transfers all radio information except the following:
Radio Serial Number
Encryption Keys
P25 Identification Number
Passwords
NOTE: Some zones may be blocked by PC programming to prevent them
from being overwritten. Only unlocked zones will accept incoming clones.
Target radios with one or more zones blocked will not accept an “Entire
Radio” clone.

KNG to Legacy Radio Cloning
Information programmed in a KNG-P150 portable can be cloned to other
BK Radio models on a Zone-to-Zone basis. Entire radio cloning is not
available between different radio models. Cloning compatible models
include: DPHX5102X, GPH5102XP, DPHX-CMD, GPH-CMD, DMH, GMH
Plus and most GPH portable models.
NOTE: E-Series portables are not cloning compatible with the KNG
series.
NOTE: Earlier BK Radio models use the term “Group” instead of “Zone”.
Cloning Information
A KNG Source Radio sends only information the Target Radio requires.
For example, digital settings such as Network Access Codes will not be
transferred to analog only models like the GPH.
Some zones may be blocked by PC programming to prevent them from
being overwritten. Only unlocked groups will accept incoming clones.
The following table shows cloned information when using a KNG-P150 as

*Picklists are not available on all legacy models.
*Picklist Capable Target Radio Considerations
If picklist selections are assigned in the source radio, and the target radio
is capable of picklist selections, the associated picklist reference will be
cloned to the target radio. For example, if a channel has a picklist selection
of Tone 3 then a picklist reference of 3 will be sent to the target radio and
the target radio will use the value stored in the 3 position of the radios
picklist. The target radio picklists will not be affected.

*Non-Picklist Capable Radio Considerations
If picklist selections are assigned in the source radio, and the target radio
is not capable of picklist selection, the associated picklist value will be
cloned to the target radio. For example, if a channel has a picklist selected
NAC whose value is $123, then $123 will be sent to the target radio.

*Picklist Capable Source Radio Considerations
If picklist selections are assigned in the source radio the associated picklist reference will be cloned to the target radio. For example, if a channel
has a picklist selection of Tone 3 then a picklist reference of 3 will be sent
to the target radio and the target radio will use the value stored in the 3
position of the its picklist. The target radio picklists will not be affected.
Source radio channels programmed with a static transmit Code Guard
or Network Access Code will assign the value to the associated channel
in the Target radio. Once cloned these channels will not be able access
picklists for that function.
Source radio channels with no transmit Code Guard or Network Access
Code will allow for picklist selection in the Target radio.
*Non-Picklist Capable Radio Considerations
If picklist selections are assigned in the source radio, and the target radio
is not capable of picklist selection, the associated picklist value will be
cloned to the target radio. For example, if a channel has a picklist selected
NAC whose value is $123, then $123 will be sent to the target radio.
