XBee-Pro 868 Parameters

YES, I got some of this hot stuff!

The first questions:

  • How can I configure the anounced 500mW TX PowerLevel?
    With X-CTU option 4 = 300mw is maximum.

  • Is there already an product manual available that describes the difference/restrictions for this module?

The OEM manual was posted just yesterday as a matter of fact: http://ftp1.digi.com/support/documentation/90001020_a.pdf

I am also looking for a way to configure the 500mW TX Power. I have found a lot of ambiguous information since the user manual says TX Power is up to 316 mW and several datasheets and brochures mention 500 mW…

Is there really a way to transmit at 500mW or is it a theoretical maximum power??? How can we configure the radio to transmit at 500mW if the TX Power parameter goes from 0 to 4, 4 being 316mW?
