Motorola R2600 options?

Postby PETNRDX » Fri Aug 26, 2016 12:44 pm

Anyone happen to know if the Tracking Gen option is just firmware or does some hardware need to be added also?
And while we are at it, same question on the Track Gen markers.
Mine has Track Gen, but would love to have markers.
A friend has Sweep Gen which would be nice to have in mine.
These things are not supported by Motorola anymore, anyone have experience with options upgrades in the past?
Maybe a list of what firmware supported what options?
Anything really.

On R2600A the firmware and Option are stored in two different type of eprom.

The firmware is in 5 AT29C010 eprom (U2-U5)

The options are stored in ST93c46A chip U43.

I think only C-message and phase demod features require hardware mod .. But not the tracking Generator and Enhanced Spectrum Analyser they are software option only.
