Re: Help Quantar Power Supply

Re: CDM "DISABLED"

Did you just acquire this radio? It sounds like another dispatch center "disabled" the radio and once that occurs only that dispatch center can re-enable it. This may be a stolen radio or the radio was on a channel it wasn't supposed to be on.

Re: MDC emergency problem with XTS5000

Try under MDC tab, Emergency tab, emergency enabled checked, emergency type: alarm - call, Acknowledge alert tone: checked, Emergency PTT-ID Sidetone: checked.

That's how mine is set up and it works perfectly
