Discuss Storno CP1000

Storno CP1000

The CP1000, sometimes known by the codename ODIN was also branded as the Motorola HTX series. Available in type I, II, or III versions refering to the no keypad, 3 button keypad+display and 12 button keypad+display models respectively. The CP1000 was developed around 1989 from the CQP8000 and uses the same RF design giving transmit powers of 2W or 5W at VHF and 2W or 4W at UHF.

Design features

CP1000 construction follows the same mechanical design as the CQP8000 with a transceiver mother board, controller flex and front panel. Interconnection between these units again made extensive use of flexible printed circuits. Test cables and accessories could connect via contact pads on the top panel by removing the protective cover.

Technical developments

Although based on the CQP8000 as far as RF design was concerned, the CP1000 brought a step forward in the areas of user interface and control logic. In particular the 2 row, 14 character LCD dot-matrix display of the type II and III models brought the capability of soft key menu driven operation.

System capabilities

The CP1000 was designed primarily for systems use with capabilities including flexible signalling, encryption, scan & select, user defined labels, soft keys and MPT1327 trunking supported by a range of customised firmware versions.

CP1000 I


The CP1000 type I was the simplest version with either 10 or 16 channel positions on the top panel switch. This gave a combination of system functionality alongside ease of use for operators who only required a simplified feature set.
CP1000 II


Although only using a 3 button keypad, the flexibility of the menu driven user interface allowed selection of up to 100 or 160 channels depending on the top panel rotary switch (10 or 16 position). The Zone number plus menus selection approach facilitated quick channel selection.

CP1000 III


The 15 button version had the same 100 or 160 channel capacity of the type II model plus the full capabilities of direct kepad entry. This was particularly popular in the MPT1327 version which was widely used for shared trunked systems in Europe.
