Default Help with programming an XPR 6550

can I program a motorolla XPR 6550 TRBO without a special cable/software? I have a fleet of radios I'd like to join without bothering the management.

Thanks

No. You need the cable and CPS (Customer Programming Software) from Motorola.

If the management wanted you to join, wouldn't they have it programmed it for you?

No "in house" programming and the local authorized distributor frowns on programming e-bay purchases do dealers exist that will program a radio if I can get the configuration and key certainly wouldnt do it without telling the boss that would be a quick exit. if I just wanted to listen I'd have purchased a scanner.

No self respecting radio shop is going to program radios onto a system they are not authorized for, especially if the ones responsible for it will not do it in the first place.

Furthermore, if they are running the system in digital, no scanner will pick it up in the first place.

Your best bet: bother the management. It should go through the same dealer that does the radio service for your company. If they won't program it because you got it off of ebay, I would discourage my company from continuing to do business with them.

Default youre right

youre right I'm just asking for trouble not using the dealer that sold them the new system I will try and press harder and promise not to encourage anyone else to go outside of the usual channels.

The radio was purchased through an authorized motorola dealer in Wisconsin I will end up losing any savings because of this but thats my "education"

you will need a cable like PMKN4012/4013
you also need AA version CPS software for XPR6550, you may order from MOL, you will get 2year update.

Many new feature will added by new software
