Re: The first Yaerola?

Saw these at IWCE earlier in the year. I actually like the vertex version better. They run the same exact software as the Mototrbo's. The main feature they lack is support for IP Site Connect and trunking I believe. (Though, I don't know how they limit the IP Site connect part since it's not subscri...

Re: A little help for an astro n00b

The Host 9/Dsp 12 in an XTS2500 indicates it is a 4MB "A" revision XTS2500. There are a few limits mainly lack of support for hardware encryption, total channel count probably will not go above the 512 mark (I believe this was only extended to 850-870 channels in R10 8mb models). The battery for it ...

Remember, you can always get the DSP refreshed. And since it's an Astro25 Host/DSP radio, that means you can have it bumped up to Host/DSP 10.x (current). Again Ray - YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. Astro Spectra Plus != 8MB Flash Memory You can NOT PUT 10.XX.XX in to a radio WHICH DOES...

The UCM's in the 2500 platform radios connect via the keypad from what I hear. You can buy a retrofit package (eventually) which will allow you to convert your radio from a "A" 2500 (aka 4mb) to a "B" 2500 (8mb) which in theory, will also include the $40ish keypad change out which allows for the con...

I'd still say chat at around 1-2 PM, see what people want to do, as depending on what's going on make dinner plans. I wouldn't expect a huge wait at 5PM on Sunday, but calling at 2pm would be the same as calling in the morning tomorrow, since they technically don't take reservations.
