Is H101 RAC compatible with Q52 and Q53 for the Astro 25 series portables?

Thanks,

H101 used to be a flashcode option prior to R06.xx.xx. Now it has since been integrated into the CPS and is no longer a flashcode option. And yes, it works in a radio with Q52/Q53.

If your radio has old firmware, programming it with the latest CPS will not add any new features unless you have the latest firmware to match..

CPS = Customer Programming Software, Not CPS Software.

It gives you MDC Repeater Access capability. It's an old method of selective radio access control used in conventional repeater systems; you can program it to transmit every time you talk, or with a side button press.

A couple of ham repeater systems in the Chicago area use it, and that's about the only use a hobbyist would have for it.

Kind of.. I guess? It means a repeater set up for it won't pass what it hears without a proper RAC ID in addition to PL/DPL, which is different and separate from a MDC unit ID.
