Does anyone have a part number for the rubber keypad membrane that goes into the SRX housing? I have a 7575692B01 keypad and it does not fit properly.

I have a similar issue with my Quantar, it will randomly reset while in use and it sends out 3 beeps over the air when it came back up. I have replaced the Xicor and the station is still doing the reset occasionally, so I am going to replace the power supply next.

All of the Motorola radios listed are programmable to use all of the channels that they support. Each model radio is programmed with a computer, it's own specific software and cable(with the exception of the GP300/P110, IIRC they use the same cable/RSS)and they normally would require a RIB unless yo...

Re: XPR5550 vs XPR2500 - what's the point of the XPR5550?

Off the top of my head I know the 5550 will do 1000 channels and the 2500 will only do 128 and the 5550 supports Connect Plus trunking and I don't think that the 2500 will. Like the XTLs it was probably meant for users that don't need all the fancy features.
