Re: Astro Spectra 800 radio mod to 700 operation

Same for the ASTRO Saber and XTS3000, you can hex edit the CPS for OOB into 700mhz, but the synthesizer won't lock.

It's better to get an ASTRO25 series radio. They are coming down in price

Re: Motorola CDM750 6 Meter Deviation

I had this issue with a 6m lowband 1250 as well. Never could figure out how to fix it, I read the BSM and re-aligned everything in the tuner but no luck. Gave it back to its owner so too late now.

The GE MLS1 lowband works much better. I made an Excel spreadsheet to calculate hex values for it.

So far no one has found any other way around this aside from making a UniRIB and flashing it into a European model

Yes. Just hex edit the CPS, it's not hard at all.

I have successfully moved S-split MCS2000 and MTS2000 radios to the 440 ham band with no issues. Usually around 435MHz the VCO won't lock.

If you press and hold the monitor button for a second, it should display a squelch adjustment option where you can open...
