    RPM allows a max of 1024 talkgroups in a groupset.

    In either case,nothing other than K4 or later would work without option 47 enabled.

    Bummer
    That is correct for the two that I have, they are both JA. The other one was an H7.

    I just wish they allowed more than 7 characters for channel naming. It drives my OCD crazy. On a positive note I bought a couple of these to tinker around with.

    Try entering radios into a Harris system. THAT will drive you nuts. No alpha-numeric serial numbers, so you have to get creative when putting Motorola radios on the system. No spaces in certain fields either. You'd think they'd leave the 90's behind, but their engineers like the 90's I suppose.

    So whats the best source for battery and antenna? There is a seller that has what appears to be NOS batteries for around 30-35 each.

    Honeywell Li-Po batteries are the best if you can find a deal on one.

    I'd highly recommend using a 700/800 XG series antenna with a metal connector. They perform way better than the older ones with a plastic connector
