Homebrew Programming Cable for the Motorola XPR Series Mobile

We are happy to have a guest post by Rich, KG5RGB . Thank you Rich for making DMR better by sharing this article with the Texas DMR community. Homebrew Programming Cable for the Motorola XPR Series Mobile Here is an easy and satisfying one evening project for those that have a Motorola XPR series DMR mobile radio. This project isn’t particularly ground breaking, as others have provided some of the basic info. But I did want to share my experience of home brewing a programming cable with the Texas 3148 DMR family. We all know some of the bits and pieces associated with our hobby can nickel and dime our precious radio budgets, but here is one dollar saving project that also allows you to keep your soldering and kit building skills honed. I spent a grand total of $5 on this project. You may spend a bit more if you can’t find an old USB cable to donate to the cause. As awesome as the Motorola XPR series is, the cost of programming and accessory cables can add up. Recent searches for OEM Mo
