XTS5000 Mod3 UHF Band 2 Help please
Unfamiliar with this
Guys, facts and help only please, this is business related and I have to get this done. Please be detailed in your instructions. Thank you all in advance.
I have 2 Motorola XTS5000 Model 3 UHF Band 2 (450-520MHz) TDMA and a recently downloaded copy of the CPS 20.01.00 Portable software. I am able to read the codeplug in the radios, but haven't been able to modify it. I am stuck to one channel (450.025000), labeled as "Z1 Digital 2". All other channels are not labeled as digital ones. Not sure if this matters yet but I figure everything will help. The radios are flashed for FPP, not trunking, and I am only transmitting between the 2 radios. If I change the channel to ANYTHING else, the radio's will not communicate. The point-to-point symbol is gone on ALL other channels except for the one we can use. I need to program a Point-to-Point channel in the 510-520MHz range. There appears to be a custom codeplug programmed into the radio from the dealer they were purchased from, not the stock Motorola FPP codeplug.
I messed around with changing the settings in the codeplug, but it didn't work when I tried to write the changes to the radio, but I'm guessing I missed something.
Here is what I need to know.
-Do I need to turn off the Write-Protect function in order to write changes or delete the old codeplug and write the new one?
-How to edit and write changes to the current codeplug
-How to turn on the point-to-point function on the channel I need, as it is not an available menu option in the FPP options on the radio.
-How to enable or verify that hardware-based encryption is on.
-Is it possible to get a Motorola stock codeplug to write into the radio for FPP/conventional and not trunking?
-How screwed am I?
