have ADP on a 2nd system works fine but no yellow LED on Enc RX like my 6000 By default, the LED will flash yellow on conventional secure receive only.

Re: ADP error ?

ADP definitely won't work in analog. Only DES-XL will work in that mode.

Re: ADP error ?

Is this on a trunking system? Sounds like your system manager may have set that talkgroup ID or your radio ID for clear TX only.

Re: APX8000XE Battery Drain

I have observed the same thing. My APX7000 can go for days. I began using an APX8000 about a year ago. It can kill a battery in 8 hours easily. Another concern for me is that the APX8000 always seems warm to the touch after it has been running for a few hours. I can leave it sitting on a conventiona...

Re: APX CPS R07.00.00

R7 host/dsp was posted on MOL last night. I'm loving the ability to have 10 preset keys for various talkgroups. Really handy. Haven't used it enough to observe much else yet. Once you upgrade to R7 read and write times to the radio are ridiculously fast from the CPS.

Re: APX CPS R07.00.00

I can say one positive thing about CPS R07 so far. I installed it last night. My codeplug with 1800+ channels now opens in less than a minute. In previous versions it would take over ONE HOUR just to load. Never mind the lag while making changes to the codeplug itself.

SWEET!

I just thought of another way that you can do this. Not sure why I didn't think of this sooner. It is possible to program the radio to have a single talkgroup with "priority 1" status. You can set the radio to treat the talkgroup as priority 1 even when it is in the middle of another call. This talk...
