• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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.

    XTS2500 NAS

    Not asking for instructions here I just want to know if NAS is POSSIBLE on an XTS2500. The features on an XTS5000 that require NAS to work aren't available on an XTS2500. So is it even possible for it to be done?

    XTS2500 PL problem

    I have a strange problem with my XTS2500. Whenever I try to listen to Riverdale FD with a PL it won't decode audio. But when I take the PL out into CSQ it works fine. And yes I have the right PL so don't think that is wrong. PL is 192.8 and I change back and forth with FPP but no matter what it...

    XTS 2500 Multiple Scan Lists

    I have a XTS2500 with multiple Scan Lists set in the CPS. How do I choose which scan list is active on the radio? I thought if I turned to a zone/channel that was in one of the secondary scan lists it would scan that list but that doesn't seem to be working. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

    XTS2500 "RADIO LOCKED"

    I have an XTS2500 M3 that displays "RADIO LOCKED" when powered on. I know this means the previous user had a password but if I force a good codeplug into the radio this should fix that right? Will I be able to read from the radio?

    XTS2500 Counterfeit?

    Not meaning to bring up an old topic, but as of 2017 are there any Motorola "counterfeits"? I have an XTS2500 and i believe it to be a panter88 radio. When I got it, it appeared to have a bad gasket seal. I opened it up and fixed the issue. Also it has a silver "Motorola" label instead of a...

    Is this possible?

    I've never owned a Motorola or an advanced commercial HT. I'm wondering if it's possible to have a combination of trunking and conventional programmed into the radio? For example: An XTS2500 UHF 450 to 512 - Our FD uses both convential UHF and a trunked system. Is it possible to have both on one...

    Impres Charger for Lithium Ion Battery

    I was just curious as to what the appropriate IMPRES charger would be for a lithium ion battery for my XTS 2500. The battery im looking at is the: NNTN7335B NNTN7335 - Motorola IMPRES IP67 Battery - LiIon 2700 mAh Would the WPLN411AR charger be appropriate for that type of battery?

I later found out that I did not have all of the information I needed prior to programming, I needed know the talkgroup ID's for the system I want to monitor. I heard something from a colleague...

    XTS2500 - Can't enable service mode

    Hi everyone! As far as I know, if you press the second side button five times within 10 seconds after powering the radio on, you will enter the service mode and will be able to read serial #, flascode and etc. It worked on my XTS1500, XTS3000 and even on WARIS (HT1250) But I can't enable this...
