I am running 6.12.09 and I am looking for instructions on how to hex edit it so that I can program 6m freqs into a low band radio. I a...

XPR 7550 DTMF tones too loud from speaker

Does anybody know if there is a way to reduce the volume of the DTMF pad while you are dialing? Is there a setting for that somewhere?

Re: xpr 6580 3600 trunking to digital conversion

Was the radio purchased as a digital radio, or a trunking only radio? If trunking only, you need the EID to upgrade to digital operations. Sounds like your radio is trunking only and need a software upgrade. Yes, it is trunking only... The docs dont say anything about paying to upgrade. It lloked l...

Re: Using a radio to open bay door at fire dept

You can get a DTMF decoder kit and another radio and wire it up to the push button for that bay door.. That way all they have to do is punch the magic code and a relay closes for 1 second and whala!

This leads to another related question. Can the Mod2's and 3's hold more than 160 modes? If the MTS can do 250, why not the MCS?

Re: MTS2000 and mtsxv6.07

I've never seen a firmware version that low...sometimes 1.2x or 1.3x. For sure the CPS will never work with it, even if it is a genuine MTS2000. Since you have LAB, you could try reading it, making the changes you desire, and saving it as a packed S-record. You should then be able to force in the S...

Re: MTS2000 and mtsxv6.07

also note the model number ends in AN, if it is a real MTS2000, likely it isn't CPS compatible which would explain the behavior of the MTS CPS rebooting the radio. IIRC a radio has to have a controller with a firmware ver higher than 5.xx to work with CPS. I had an early AN rev MTS2000 800 with a c...

You might try bypassing the PA on the GM300, just lift the line into the 1st transistors and route that to the antenna connector.

I just stumbled into a pile of MCS2000's.. Problem is they are all remote head. Can the remote head parts be removed so the head can attach directly to the radio?
