    Default Astro Spectra+

    I need to know how I can change the control head type on my spectra+ I've got a W9 head and the cps is looking for W5
    How do you read the s-rec or put the radio into flashzap mode?

    There is no legit way the end user can do it. From what I know you need depot software to force a proper codeplug into it. The astro plus is a cheaper alternative to the XTL series. I just wish they had made the 136-162 VHF astro plus in something other than a W7 head.

    You read the radio with cps, then there is a option to change control head type in one of the menu's of regular cps, no hacking required on Astro25 radios.

    Only the XTL allows changing control head types, not the astro spectra plus.
