XTL5000 O5 control head

Post by goode277 »

Does anyone know if you can use an XTL5000 O5 control head on an older Spectra radio? I have an A7 and A9 control heads, but I would like to upgrade to an O5....

Not gonna happen...

If your radio has old firmware, programming it with the latest CPS will not add any new features unless you have the latest firmware to match..

CPS = Customer Programming Software, Not CPS Software.

Ah, I see you've stumbled upon Cowtheif's method for enabling FPP on Spectras...



Seriously, think about what you're asking.

You ought to see the one I have..........
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...
