    I've got a radius M216 that I've programmed. Its 25watts according to model number but I couldn't find a PA part#, just the logic (16 pin) and the RF board.

    CM300 Unassigned

    Anybody ever seen a CM300 locked up with UNASSIGNED on the display and a solid steady tone? The only way to clear it is to power cycle the radio off and on. It's usually good for a bit but then does it again. I'm probably going to send it out to Moto but thought I'd ask around first. Thanks!
