Can the MARS/CAP option be installed in the field?

    I believe this question needs more than a single word answer ;-)

    If you have a FLEX-6700 or FLEX-6500, the only thing that is needed is a TURF file which you can get from opening a HelPDesk ticket and providing a copy of a valid MARS license and the serial number of your radio.

    If you have a FLEX-6400(M) or FLEX-6600(M), then you need the TURF file as noted above in addition, you must have an extended transmit module installed in the radio.  This can be field installed or it can be installed by the service department if you already have the radio or installed at the time of purchase.  However, if you have the service department install the module, they will perform a complete test and calibration of the radio with the module installed to ensure it is working correctly.

    If you have  FLEX-6300, this radio is not capable of being used for MARS.
