Default XTS1500 MDC Call List Question

XTS1500 MDC Call List Question. I am new to the Astro series programming but have been doing Waris for years and have some experience with TRBO, so this is a little different for me. I know that each MDC call list is limited to 50 MDC aliases, which isnít a huge deal because we only have about 50 radios at my department anyway, we just wouldnít be able to have the other departments in my Township loaded in. I set up a second call list for our EMS channel with their IDís on their channel, but I notice when they switch over to ours, they still decode as well (which is good). Would I be correct in assuming that I could program other stations into different call lists and they would display radio wide, or am I incorrect? What is the limit for how many call lists you can have?

You can create up to 50 call lists and have 50 aliases in each.

Yes.

That's one of the pros and cons of Motorola radios. If there's a lack of ID planning in your area, it's possible two departments might both use the same ID which results in a bit of confusion because the radio can't differentiate between them.

Thank you for the responses. Fortunately, our County assigns MDC’s, so there isn’t any duplication. This will actually work out well for me because now I will be able to have our whole Township’s aliases loaded in.

Thanks again!
