Without going on line your own computer can do it.
START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > CALCULATOR > VIEW > SCIENTIFIC.
Select HEX or DEC, enter the number, then select the other (HEX or DEC).

That will convert hex to decimal, but it won't provide properly formatted Motorola IDs.

Sure it will. All you have to do is drop the last zero off the end.

2224 Dec = 8B0 in Hex (Windows Calculator) = 8B Hex in Motorola

You're forgetting the prefixes, 7 and some zeroes for RID and 8 and some zeroes for GID, I think.

Those are for the Maxtrac and Systems Saber. The newer line of radios is just Hex. But yeah, I see what you mean.

edit: I just checked on a Systems Saber codeplug here and the 800000 number you're referring to is the dec equivalent (last set of numbers). So in my case one of our talk groups is 800911 which would be 911 in Dec and 38F in Hex. The Systems Saber RSS shows both hex and dec.
