XTL5000 VHF high power W7. What programming cable

Post by radiocat37 »

I have a W7 head, XTL5000 high power VHF remote mount and am not sure what is the correct programming cable. Can someone advise?

Thanks

you can use the Astro Spectra Plus for the control head microphone on the W series

You can also connect via the rear accessory connector either USB or RS-232.

Used to be a doc floating around on P25.ca showing those connections

Thanks. This model doesn't have a rear accessory port. It has the front remote panel like a spectra (control cable on one side and programming cable port on the other side). Can you advise a part number or location where I can get that cable?? Thanks

Either program through the head, or the 25 pin connector on the front of the deck.
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...

I think I found it. HKN6155B HKN6155 - Motorola ASTRO SPECTRA Programming / Flash Cable RS232

Thanks to all who helped.

You can also use a USB or serial GCAI cable through the GCAI port on the TIB. I programmed one this morning with the USB cable and it worked fine.

I actually found the correct port. I never noticed the circular port between the two cable connection ports on the front panel. I felt pretty dumb. Got it all programmed and working. Thanks again.
