    Default General question about EFJ mobiles

    I don't have the radio in front of me, so forgive my vagueness, but I'm just generally curious about something:

    Can a radio such as a 242-9653 Viking be flashed/converted to operate on P25 conventional channels?

    One of our customers was using one in their data system they decommissioned, and they e-wasted it to us. It seems to be fully functional. Looking at it made me curious.

    Seems to me the design of the radio (at least the control head) is identical to a series EFJ released that DOES do P25 (RS 5300?).

    Any comments? Not seeking to do this, but just curious.

    My guess is no, I bet EFJ changed the logic board to include the nessessary IMBE vocoder chip etc.
