Question XTL 2500/5000

How many zones can these radios do, and how many channels can be programmed into each zone?

Let me google that for you

The Motorola Solutions specification sheets are to be found for both radios in the first couple of hits of each search.

The XTL2500s & 5000s will do 50 zones.

I would have to add a comment to that. It sort of depends on what firmware version you have in the radio. But yes, they will do the 50 zones. I just wish they would go higher. When I first got my radio, it wouldn't go that high. Did a firmware upgrade and it added more channels and allowed me to get to the 50 zone limit it is at currently.

The radios I have are loaded with 50 zones and have between 10 and 15 channels in each zone. To many that may seem like way more channels ( modes ) than you could possibly use. What you don't know is that all these zones and modes allow me to hit ham repeaters from southern New Hampshire all the way down to the New Orleans area. I also have channels from Norfolk, VA all the way out to Oklahoma City, OK.
