Motorola XTL5000 Consolette conversion to mobile

Postby MotoFAN » Wed Jan 01, 2014 1:05 pm

Hi all!

I am thinking about to convert my XTL5000 Consolette W7 (L20KSS9PW1AN) for mobile usage - for e.g. to O5.

I thinks that I will need H1818A Dash to Remote conversion kit, O5 head assy. After that change model number to usual XTL5000, rewrite codelug and finally change head type to O5.

There are any things to pay attention?
I am biggest fan of XTS2500 and ASTRO Digital Saber.

Alignment??
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...
