    I was referring to the 16.00.02 DSP referenced in RK22s post above. Does it not exist then?

    I *believe* the last DSP an AN radio can take is 16.00.01.

    If you run the R20.50.09 cvn package against the AN radio, it will bring it up to the latest and final for AN.

    A 4-meg AN radio will take R19.50.01, with the assistance of certain tools.

    The latest firmware won't push it to 16.00.02 for some reason there was one version of 09.41 firmware for the AN radios that contained the 16.00.02 DSP upgrade. I dont know why they didnt continue it after that release.

    Available memory in the unit. The added features and patches had used up the 4 meg. The would have had to rewrite the whole AN firmware to trim out unwanted or poorly written code to make more room. Too much work.

    1. You can use the latest firmware to upgrade an AN radio to the latest host and dsp version for that radio.

    2. R16.00.01 is the latest official dsp release for the AN radio.

    3. Here are the release notes for 20.50.09 as they relate to host and dsp upgrade versions for 4M radios:

    "...EXCEPT for SSE 5000 radios, ASTRO Spectra Plus radios and XTS 2500, XTS 1500, MT 1500 and PR 1500 radios which model numbers end with ĎANí. These radios will be upgraded to version R09.00.41 for the host, R16.00.01 for the DSP, and R05.07.15 for the UCM (if applicable). ASTRO Spectra Plus radios which model numbers end with ĎBNí will be upgraded to version R20.00.01 for the host, R19.50.00 for the DSP, and R05.07.15 for the UCM. Please note going forward, any R09.xx.yy version will only contain defect fixes, no new radio functionality will be added in these releases."

    I took a look at an IR codeplug read from a Quantar that was surplused from our decommissioned regional 4.1 system... yes, analog repeater boost is available, and yes, it was enabled. TX deviation was set to 4 kHz for rebanded NPSPAC channels and 5 kHz for non-NPSPAC channels. Analog audio quality was generally good across every Motorola subscriber I ever used.

    Number 6: I donít think Motorola is very consistent with their release notes. I have several 8 MB (BN) Astro spectra plus units. When I updated to the latest firmware, it went to R20.50.09 host and R19.50.01 DSP.

    Yeah, looking back at prior release notes, Motorola didnít update the BN Astro spectra plus version info correctly. The 4M XTS info is correct. Another example of Motorolaís crap work.

    This is why on newer models I wait a while before updating the fleets. We dont have the time to beta test public releases.

    FYI the radio originally in question has been updated and reported to be working much better. The trunking bandwidth setting and the DSP were both tweaked.
