Re: 53SL Questions

Cycle Power is a cover up message for an error where the logic board can't read the Rf board. Most likely due to the flex connection between the two.
reseat the flex and try again.

Re: Ancient 5100 questions!

I'm also very interested in old flash files. I've got DSP firmware for the Version one but nothing for the system. I've got some 1.10.x radios that have some firmware problems. I was told there was a 1.32.11 but its a special version meant for a state. I assume this is just some trunking thing (Whi...

Re: Ancient 5100 questions!

could you give me some key words to search for the most newest flash for this, and the name of the software that does it? Also, I am having problems loading a key into it. I am using a motorola KVL, and a modified motorola cable. It seems to load ok, but then when I cycle the radio, and then switch...

Re: 53SL Questions

Its a problem with being able to read the logic board. Most likely a flex issue. You can cycle power a few times and see if it will finally read but most likely it will keep appearing as it is a hardware issue. You can pop the cover off and try to re-seat the flex strip that connects to the logic, t...

Re: Ancient 5100 questions!

The PRC127s are the still the same hardware as any other 5100 of the same series. My guess is, that you have a demo radio or some other sort along those lines. Typically those are all 023- or 888- instead of the full 242-. Form 2.4.6 to 2.8.15 you will get a ton of operational improvements and some ...

Re: Ancient 5100 questions!

2.8.15 is the last release for that radio.
I think the PCC needed is 1.28.0.8.
There is no magic way to get full model number. It should be on the frame under the battery.

Re: Problem with Ef Johnson 5300

I think this is more likely just an issue with the main unit itself.
My memory isn't the greatest but I think the last FW version for the HHC itself was 3.14 (maybe 3.15), downside is that the HHC isn't something you can flash in the field.

Re: EFJ Avenger questions

PCConfigure will NOT work with the Avenger Radios.
EFJ doesn't support those radios anymore either.
My only advice would be to try and contact Paul from Paul's Two Way.

Re: Problem with Ef Johnson 5300

I would start with the correct PCConfig. 4.4.14 should be using PCC 1.28.0.8 for programming.
I have heard hit and miss stories with RF Guys cables but being that you are able to read/write I don't suspect that to be an issue in this case.

I.S.
