XTR programming question

I recently picked up a nice XTR with the model number of 70-1342B-MM. Does anyone know if this radio is narrowband capable? I saw in another thread that maybe MM models are. The FCC ID number is AK5701342BMM and a search of the Part 90 database lists this model as capable of both 16K0F3E and 11K0F3E...

Re: Relm RMV800 tx problem

Just a follow up on this. I went ahead and bought a new PA module from a Chinese vendor and installed it. That seemed to cure the problem. I think the reason the original PA failed was because there was a problem with the threads on the SO-239 antenna coax connector and it wasn't allowing the PL-259...

Relm RMV800 tx problem

Then after the radio is on for about 5-10 minutes and you key the mic, the red light comes on but the transmit wattage drops to zero. If you are li...

Re: TK-862H problems

I purchased a new kpg-4 cable made by an American company and the problem is solved! I can read and write to the radios now with no problem. Thanks again for the help.

Re: TK-862H problems

Thanks for the reply k2hz. I have been using a generic kpg-4 cable that works fine on a tk-880 that I have, but this is the first time I have tried using it on a tk-862. I'll see if I can get my hands on a genuine kpg-4 and see if that will make a difference.

TK-862H problems

I have three TK-862H radios that I can't seem to read or write to using the kpg-29d software. All I get is the Error!! Check connections message. I am using a kpg-4 cable that I have used with success on other radios, so I know it's not the cable. I am using the software on a couple of old windows 9...
