    Default Astro Spectra Plus info needed!

    Hi Group; I have a question about Astro Spectra Plus 800 MHz Radio. I am looking to purchase some of them and the radios are Available in Version 9 or 5 firmware same flash. Question is is V9 worth paying a additional 100.00? Thanks Bill

    I don't deal with 800 here at all in my area, but I would get what you want and order up a firmware upgrade (about $75) from escomm. There are a couple others that would probably help you out too if you needed it.

    The more updated flash would be desirable. Since Moto sells the flash upgrades for $75 the $100 is not unreasonable to connect upgrade and test a radio. You may want to look into the vocon if its anything other than a HLN6837E (the latest) you can only update the firmware to is V16.01.00. If this is the case I would also recommend using CPS v16.01.00 on the radios too.
