Re: Favorite VHF Wideband antenna?

For some reason my dummy load is flat right across the band but it does not radiate very well.

Re: Problem with DEP-450 Roaming

Motos does address some of the fixes in the firmware release documents. Generally speaking if you have the document for any region the changes will be the same. First thing check the freq on the radio a little difference like a couple of hundred Hz can be all thats wrong. Compare it to the working r...

Re: Problem with DEP-450 Roaming

Are the units all at the same firmware generation both repeater and portable?

Re: Motorola APX Firmware 18 and above moving forward

Once the radio is upgraded the EID is useless anyway. In theory having the EID on one computer should be fine. Or am I missing something?

Re: Motorola APX Firmware 18 and above moving forward

I have not seen anything either at this end. We have a substantial fleet of APX and the EID method may not be practical if there is a major upgrade wanted. I guess it all depends on how the EID upgrade is configured. A radio by radio upgrade is not practical, any EID would have to be for a large (mo...

Lets hope that Motorola makes it easy to get the EIDs without having to have MOL or an account.

Re: Motorola APX Firmware 18 and above moving forward

A step in the right direction. This will prevent older radios from being updated to newer codeplug/flash and firmware versions. DEPOT radios can be toolproofed futher. I dont think its appropriate to go into how this can be done. The use of depot has created all kinds of headaches the biggest being ...

Re: FIRMWARE VERSION 17.01.01

Again Moto releases something not properly vetted. This is exactly why I dont use current releases on anything other that our service hardware.

Re: Astro Saber

Since the radio line is NLA and the firmware is free if you had MOL for the saber line. I would say that its ok to post it to a file sharing site and post the link.

Re: Interop Between Type I & II

Go strait to P25. Once they get used to the clarity over the analog things will go smoother.

Re: Odessey Control Head Discrepencies

I think the display on the decimal is from the character set on the Command board. In the few cases where I use a freq I just skip the decimal point. Check the board revisions, one will be a 'A' the other a 'C' or something similar. Its the same setting that forces the AS+ to all be in caps. The O s...

Re: APX 8500

I service several 8500s. They are just used on single bands right now (what a waste). They were bought for interop use where VHF and UHF systems are needed.Now there are some 800 systems so I guess someone was thinking ahead( ill pat myself on the back later). I have not looked into setting up a tri...
