Re: P25 Techs from a Different View

Interesting that a III can be retrofitted to a IV and gain P25. Of course too late for the county since they went the subscriber route and going StarCom21 here.

Re: P25 Techs from a Different View

Our county is using UHF MASTR III conv. repeaters and has coverage for ####. Almost all the other PD's cover their towns and counties, our county barely covers 2 towns. Sad...

Re: XTS5000 Screen Text

I looked again, I see nothing with that test box, I did notice when I switch to a secure channel it will flash the Key Alias, in the spot where the ASTRO P25 resides.

Re: XTS5000 Screen Text

Ack, just closed the CPS and opened my email. I will look when I get back to the office.

If I can set what I want I could see using it to ID my Radios

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

Thanks Otaku, by no means a deal killer, keep me up at night thing. I know there is the DVSR hack, for people that have to seem like a trunked chirp. I will leave well enough alone. I think instead I need to find an antenna that can put up with the wife's abuse on the mobile, she is on antenna 4 now...

Re: XTS5000 Screen Text

I thought that at first, but I have looked at all the Radio Wide settings, not a clue. I think I will just ask the seller, he has a large YouTube channel, SnarlingRabidDog I think is the handle.

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

For customers where you want the tone strap the mode to clear. They will have the tone but no encryption. This is interesting enough that Im going to try strapping the clear alert and see if there is a enc alert as well. this might be a real simple way of adding in TPT (talk permit tone) for custom...

Re: XTS5000 Screen Text

Where would that be, I looked and I have the field to add a name to the Zone, it only allows 3 letters since I wanted more Channel name real-estate.

Is this some function embedded deeper?

XTS5000 Screen Text

I recently purchased a few XTS5000's one I got is a model 2 from a pretty reputable seller on eBay. I create a codeplug on my XTS5000 Model 3 FPP and then proceeded to basically do a side by side of the configuration settings and copied over with the drag n drop method to the Model 2. Oddly on the M...

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

I feel foolish! It was the TX Clear tone. I never recalled setting that up, in another thread I was asking on ADP setup and completed that yesterday and yep, on the secure mode channel I strapped to ADP, no side tone.

Thanks :)

Re: APX encryption

Just a follow up, got my portables reprogrammed and rewrote the codeplugs for the mobiles, loading them today and swapping radios out in the boss's car (the sammich machine) and set up the encryption, That was way to easy! Actually once I figured it out with you guys help, it to me makes better sens...

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

Thanks guys, I didn't see that checked but in the process of programming the XTS5000 up and see what it does. I will try those options and see what works. I used to hate the Talk tone, but since it has been on the mobile in the car and same for wife, she was used to the Starcom 21 system as a cop so...

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

Hence why I have a Toughbook I can boot a USB up for DOS (true DOS) and an old POS HP I can use for some of the older software. I will send an email today on something I think we talked about but just reminding. BTW, I too want the tone, I don't need the chirp like Nextel, but I have gotten used to ...

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

Thanks Colin, no problem, Notorola answered what I was after, so don't worry. We just relaunched the rescue web site that I was dragged into, web site relaunches always cause me to gray out even more then normal and nothing ever rolls over right. I did give your Zapped a plug ;) I will look and see ...

Re: Talk Inhibit/Talk Permit Tone

I have not heard the Clear TX Tone, best I can describe is when you do MDC Pre-Sidetone. It last about that long as well.
