Re: APX 4500 & J2 rear connector

Thanks. I was hoping I could just remove the ignition sense and speaker wire and pull the pins out of the connector and just keep the jumper that is in 14 & 15 connected and it would work.

Re: APX 4500 & J2 rear connector

I’m looking at using the connector that came with the radio. I’m asking if I pull the connector apart and remove the ignition sense wires and just leave the jumper will that work? If they turn the main power on in the truck the radio needs to turn on also and it does until I put the connector on it....

So I have a firetruck that on one talkgroup when the radio is turned on it goes into emergency mode automatically.

There are rumours floating around that when Motorola releases 2.10 you will only be able to program using RM. Can anyone confirm this?

MOTOTRBO Radio Management

Anyone here using it to manage their trbo systems? I'm looking for advice on how to go about adding different systems when you don't have a radio to read into the configuration mode. We're making the move to move all trbo systems that are either trunking, IP Site Connect, or use Radio ID's to RM.

Weird scan issue

So I have some XTS-5000 model 1's setup to scan 3 conventional channels. A couple of things are happening and I can't figure out if its a setting I've missed or what. So when you turn scan off via the programmed button it will not let you enable scan again without turning the radio off and back on. ...

I'm having an issue with getting Astro 25 to read of any of XTS's in Win 10. It pops up and says the radio is not detected via USB port. I've tried all 3 ports, and two different programming cables. Works fine in APX CPS and APX radios.

If they are going to offer a trunking system for TRBO they should at least include this instead of the range bar, but that's just my opinion.

Re: Master site Static IP - alternative solutions

Take it for what its worth, but from my research I was under the impression that you could do DHCP to the router, then set a static from the router to repeater and that would cover the issue.
