To make sure that you have the correct channel no assigned to the correct zone and to change personality type from trunked to conventional?Also check under SECURE option and make sure that you don't have hardware encryption enabled checked off.

The QCII is available on the XTS5000 after HOST 9 if I am not mistaken?Not sure on the firmware version needed on the XTS2500.The QCII is a standard option on both radios.

Only issue is that since its only 600mAh,it will only last about 4 hrs if you have your radio set to high power,

Battery is half the size of the standard battery.With this battery on the radio,the radio is slightly thinner than a pack of cigarettes.
