    Default Mid Power XTL5000 VHF with W4 Head - R04.00.01 firmware - CPS?

    I have a mid power VHF XTL5000 with a W4 head. The radio was manufactured in April 2004 and has HOST and DSP R04.00.01 dated 1/24/2004....so its never been updated!!

    At the moment, the XTL5000 has a very basic analog only flashcode - 000001 002 005

    As a starting point , I just want to program some very basic simplex analog frequencies.

    As a second step, I want to enable the W12 pre-amp option.

    At the moment, I am not so interested in enabling P25.

    I know I should be updating the firmware using an iButton but at this stage it is not an option.

    As a starting point I was planning on using an early version of Astro 25 Mobile CPS such as R06.00.00. Will this work OK?

    Are there any risks in using a later CPS version? I know you have to avoid R17 with my XTS5000 so are there any Mobile CPS versions which should be avoided?
