Astro Saber

Hey folks,

Got another question for everyone.

I just received an Astro Saber to use with the fire department.

Issue is, when I went to program it, it popped up and said that the target radio didn’t support 2.5khz steps. And that I needed to update the firmware.

Anyone know where to find a file to update the firmware?

Local radio shops don’t have it.

I have someone who can upgrade it for me but we just need the file.

Current host is 4.01.05 and dsp is I6.03.02.

Thanks.

I have the CVN file, not sure if it is OK to post?

The latest firmware is R07.71.07 DSP I08.03.05

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.

Notorola,

Would you happen to know what firmware version the Astro Saber supported the 2.5khz splinter steps?

Mine is at Host 4.01.05 and it does not support it.

I have 3 512k models I might have to send to someone to get upgraded since they are just as old as OP's radio. Glad to see the CVN is still readily available though.

Notorola,

No problem. I ended up just buying another one that will do what I need.
Same guy I bought my Astro spectra from. Got just the radio, which was all I needed for $70 shipped. I’ll use the one that doesn’t work for spare parts if I need to.
