XPR 6580 onto 900 mhz ham band

Postby screa34 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:37 am


Does anyone out there have any experience getting the portable XPR 6580 onto the ham bands? I'm probably just going to be doing analog, but might do DMR too in the future.

Any help is appreciated. I do have normal CPS, but won't allow direct programming to those frequencies.

It works there just fine. But if it's flashed for trunking, it will not do 902/927. But if it is analog only, or Trbo, it will do 902/927. Just need to hex edit the CPS. Plenty of articles on that. I still have a 6380 that does 902/927 just fine, in Analog, or Trbo. No VCO adjust, or anything. GARY
