EFJ 242-5571

I have a rebanded Multinet radio that was inadvertantly hooked to an older RIB for programming. The radio is now unresponsive, only showning a version in a single line on the display. Is this indicative of a lost flash or worse? If a flash is lost, is there a way to recover it without paying the $$ ...

Re: EFJ 53SL power connectors

I went over the connector again and found the abbreviation P.E.D. I had done a search before but may have used PED. This time I did find one site that sells Packard Weather Pack terminals. http://www.texasindustrialelectric.com/weatherpack_terminals.asp The price for a housing and 2 pins was just ov...

EFJ 53SL power connectors

I am looking for a source of the power connectors for the newer style radios (53SL)
An alternative is used power cables for that type radio.
Just looking to avoid lopping off the OEM connectors.

Reband flash for 53SL

I saw a price on a State webpage of $300 for a rebanding flash. Is the 53SL updateable and is it $300 once or per radio?

Re: 53SL programming cable

I figured out the pinout from the round mic connector to the RIB box for a Viking using a 9800 RIB if you think it is the same. My 53SL cable is the ribless USB cable.

Re: Multinet flashing

I believe Chester County PA is digital Multinet. Waterbury CT is in the process of rebanding and they are using the radios I had mentioned in another post, the 5571 & 5572. The ChesCo system had been described to me as Multinet III but I have never seen any reference to that from EFJ.

Multinet flashing

Any idea if a 53SL (242-5477-201DBBB4) can be flashed for the latest Multinet version (digital)?

Models 5571 & 5572

I can't find any reference to EFJ models 5571 & 5572. Are they rebanding only radios. They are being installed in a 800 Multinet system for rebanding.

can a 023-9800 RIB program a 53xx radio

I am looking for into regarding programming up a 53xx radio. I have the PCConfigure and I have a 023-9800 RIB (write-on). Would I need a 023-5300 or newer RIB or would the older RIB work?

Thanks,

mdx problem

I have a pm82sp, EDACS MDX scan radio. I can read and write to the radio but when I power it up, all I get is a slow blinking of the keylights/backlight. Like a dope, I failed to save a copy of the codeplug in it when I got the radio, but the display was working normally then. I am using the DOS pro...

according to the PDF file that came with the PCConfigure software, you need the 023-5300-000 RPI. It says that none of the others will work (such as the 9800 or 9750.)
The kit with everything is 250-5000-004. The cable is 250-5300-005.

(The manual is 2 megs)

Rebanding and EFJ

Looking for some info on the expected impact on rebanding EFJ Multinet systems.
Will 97xx radios work with/ without a flash upgrade? How about older equipment? 86xx?

Thanks,
chris
