Default XTS5000 Narrowband?

So I've been using an XTS5000 for a while now and it has a 12.5kHz option in the CPS and FPP but not in the flashport code. But while browsing eBay and found a radio with "12.5 kHz FCC Mandate" (Q507) in the flashport code. Does this mean that my radio doesn't have 12.5kHz narrowbanding?

My radios flashport: 560000-001306-2
The eBay radios flashport: 588408-901E87-2

Thanks for the help!

Default XTS5000 Narrowband?

I believe the mandate option just *requires* you to have your business band frequencies narrow banded. Otherwise you go into receive settings and change the receive deviation then it will let you change the TX deviation if it doesn't automatically change it.


Every 5000 can be narrowbanded.

This is exactly right. If your radio has the narrowband mandate option, you cannot program in wideband channels. This makes radios with the option installed not really usable for amateur radio. APX Radios have smarter logic and will let you program in wideband channels where they are allowed such as amateur and marine..

You have to change the deviation field.
