    Default XTL5000 with O3 head and VRS750

    I have a XTL5000 with an O3 control head and a VRS750 mobile repeater that I would like to work together. Motorola has set the radio up to not work with the VRS750 when you use a O3 control head. You can program the radio with VRS enabled and have a VRS menu button but when you attempt to turn the VRS on nothing happens. When you put the radio in service mode it reads the VRS hardware and knows it's there. Has anyone figured out how to make this setup work???

    This setup works with an O5 head on the same radio...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Sorry I think you are stuck With the 05 Head, No HHCH will work with the VRS750, But you can get a aftermarket VRS to Work with the 03 HHCH LOL

    I can use a Pyramid SVR250 with no problem, but I really would like to be able to use the mode steering capability of the VRS750. I have one more thing I can try and that is to program the VIP port as as the VRS enable and see if it works. I was hoping that someone had figured out how to make it work in firmware.
