Intermittent Popping Sound on RX - XTS2500

Does not happen all the time and doesn't happen on all repeaters. Swapped out antenna connector and speaker. Same issues still happen.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Re: Astro 25 Portable 17.00.00

Host 17.00.02
DSP 17.00.02

Has been released. I had no issues on a XTS2500 & XTS5000 with 17.00.00
Tough trying to get 17.00.02 to load correctly. All kind of errors. I can't even get it to read the 2500. The 5000 looks like it updated. When I read the radio it is showing the currect Host/DSP.

Need to update Astro Saber III UHF?

Is there any reason to have an Astro Saber III UHFL that currently has:

Host: 04.00.05
DSP: 06.03.02
Flashcode: FE01F8-880000-5

It is only used in Ham Bands Analog/P25.

How much should I expect to pay?
Best place/person to possible do it?

Thanks

Fits great on the 2500 but on the 5000 the concentric will be tough to turn.

JT1000 TX Audio/Deviation & RSS

Can the TX audio be changed in the RSS like a newer xts2500/5000 which you can change AGC on/off as well as change the TX in +/- 3db increments?
I have a JT1000 that came as NOS but no one can hear me, sounds like I'm whispering.

I know what it is/means but my question is has anyone ever had this pop up for one or two hours and then never happen again?
Is this just letting me know that soon I will have the Fail 001 error for good if I do not have it fixed?

A question about "H35 Conventional Systems Operation"

I have a chance to get a pretty decent deal on an XTS5000 Mod.3 UHF-L. As I would use this mostly in the HAM band I see the Flash does not have the H35 Conventional Systems Operation option. So would I be SOL for Repeater/Simplex use?
