5300 and rebanding to the 700 MHz segment

Post by jim202 » Mon Dec 29, 2014 9:25 pm

Can someone point me in the direction of some helpful comments? I am trying to see if I can get a 5300 mobile I have function in the 773 MHz range. The model number is 242-5477-201AFAB4. On power up it displays 3.17.21 and 4.6.6. Currently using version 2.10.2 software on the radio.

That radio will operate in the 700MHz band if optioned for it.
You will need to use PCConfigure and do a Read Options and see if the 700MHz option is checked.

I.S.
Sean Penn: Last year I went to Iraq. Before Team America showed up, it was a happy place. They had flowery meadows and rainbow skies, and rivers made of chocolate, where the children danced and laughed and played with gumdrop smiles.
