    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    XTL5000 High Power w/ W3 Control Head

    I recently purchased a headless XTL 5000 high power. I changed the control head from an 05 to a W3 HHCH. The W3 will allow me to change the channel and volume. When I key up the radio it will transmit the MDC info but the microphone doesn't seem to pick up any sound. I have searched the forums...

    XTL5000 transmit tone

    I have programmed an XTL5000 that has a tone after the normal MDC1200 keyup (wait to talk) tone. This tone is just a short beep but it's not the short side tone beep because it does it both on MCD and ASTRO channels. It's approx 500ms into the key up. The system we are using is Analog...

    XTS 3000 Programming

    I'm looking into getting an XTS 3000. I already have an XTS 5000 along with an aftermarket programming cable and the Motorola CPS for it. My question: can I use the same cable and/or software I use for my XTS 5000 to program an XTS 3000? If not, what is the part number for the CPS? Thanks!

    XTS 2500/5000 Questions

    I am a little confused about the things I have found out about these radios! Can the radio Tx/Rx on the 800MHz digital PLUS the radio analog bands, i.e. 462.700MHz? I see that they have different models but can one radio do it all? Also if you have the Model lll (the one with the keypad) can you...
