5300ES V6 with remote.

Question for Intrinsically Safe or anyone else: I purchased a 5300 Version 6 on EBay that was advertised as VHF. The unit I received was actually a 700/800 public safety band. This radio has the standard front control head and also a connector for a remote head. The radios will not key transmit or c...

Re: EFJ 242-5326-271 programming cable

RF Guys sell a cable for the 5300 series. I have had good luck with the RF Guys cable for the HHC.

Re: Upgrading a VHF HB radio ...?

Old thread but someone may still want this information. I was able to use PC Tune and reset the band on several 100W VHF HIGH radios to VHF (50W) and then got the whole band. Surprisingly, the output was exactly 50 Watts with no resetting of the output power and the 100W bolted on PA is still in pla...

EF Johnson 5326 110W to 5318 50W conversion

Hello, I am looking for information on how to convert a 100W VHF 5326 back to its base radio, the 50W 5318. I want to use this radio for CAP and need 50W and frequency down to 139 MHz. I know it can be done because I have another 532x that is now 50W and low VHF capable. Does the bolt on added PA mo...

Re: 5300 Programming Nightmare

Were you ever successful? I have an 5318 that programs with an RF Guys cable for the HHC. I have a 5328 that I can program with the EFJ RIB.

Re: Firmware-PCConfig Decode

Thanks for all the good information. I have a new, never used, 531H ES series radio with remote head that shows firmware version (Controller version) 6.10.6 and EFJ says I need PCC 2.12.6 to program it. I have 2.14.10, can I upgrade the firmware to use 2.14.10? I only intend to use this for CAP (Ana...

Re: Highest firmware for 242-5112-210-GA?

Thanks,

I have not yet performed a firmware update. Do I use PCC or do I need a special loader? How safe is this?

Highest firmware for 242-5112-210-GA?

I have a 5100 model 242-5112-210-GA and was able to program it for CAP use and it works. Can I upgrade this to 1.18.15 and what, if any, would be the advantage?

Thanks
