the release notes should tell you what changed. I haven't DL it yet myself to read it.

New firmware R08.07.00 also coming soon, by the looks.

https://businessonline.motorola.com/DOC ... Readme.pdf

In short: No major changes. The "listen only" talkgroups idea is interesting. I assume the radio still affiliates, but it's prevented from initiating calls on a talkgroup.

Code: Select all

What's New in the CPS:
- Private Line Tone & Multiple Private Line (MPL) Tone on DIRECT Simplex 
  This feature adds support for Private Line (PL) tones on direct simplex 
channels and 
  increases the number of programmable PL tones.
- Display Radio Alias ID on Mobiles
  This feature allows the user to view/read their Radio Alias ID from a 
  equipped with the O9, O5, or O3 control head. 
- Midtier Channel Increase
  This enhancement increases APX Conv Channel Options / Pers and Maximum 
Number of 
  programmable modes (Channels) to 1000.   
- Listen Only Talkgroup
  The CPS can now identify a talkgroup as 'listen only', thereby allowing a 
  radio system to program talkgroups that are 'listen only.' 
- Radio Alias ID Special Characters
  This feature allows a radio to utilize special characters when creating 
  alias IDs.  Characters such as !@#$%^&*() are now allowed.
- CPS support for the Ultra Low Power SRX 2200 UHF R1 FM 
  This feature will be fully supported with the release of the Ultra Low 
power radio 
  in a future release.

Supported APX Radios:
     APX 6000
     APX 6000XE
