    WS1040: Program a WS1040. Will Pay.

    I'm not too familiar with the XTL family, as I am with the XTS family, and I'm trying to discover which band this XTL operates in. Below is the only information I have regarding this without actually looking at the CPS. Is there a way to find out what model this can operate in? Thank you
