• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello all. New to this site and have a question. I am looking to purchase an MT2000 off of ebay. Can someone tell me some information about this radio just by its model number? Channels, watts?
Also is this radio narrowband ready?

Have a look here for a bunch more info:

The MTSX Series

It is 4 or 5 watts. I think narrow band depends on the firmware version and hardware revision, but I'm not totally sure.

That is a VHF 136-174MHz radio. 5 watts. 160 Channels, and it should be the full keypad version. I believe all of the jedi series radios are narrowband capable. I have that exact model radio myself.

Channel capacity isn't reflected in the model number at all. Any Jedi radio (MT2000, MTX2000, MTS2000, MTX8000, MTX838 and MTX9000) are all capable fo 255 modes.

I think he means the MT2000 series that were model 2 or 3 were by default 160 channels. same thing as the MTS2000 but with a mod they can be 255.
Pretty much by default they were 160 channels, but an option either at Moto or with a hack can make them 255 channels. So your correct in saying they are capable of..
