    Target Digital Radios

    You are correct in that when in off network Direct Talk mode, the iDEN network (i.e., NEXTEL) is not used at all. The off network Direct Talk (DT) feature is not to be confused with the Direct Connect (DC) PTT feature which used the iDEN network. No iDEN network service is available while in...

    Motorola DTR 410

    No private groups in the DTR410, IIRC. Private groups started with the DTR550 and DTR650 models.

    Cats

    My wife and I have 4 cats. I've never hard a problem with them getting into my radio stuff. They aren't interested at all. We had one cat years ago that liked to chew on the end of the antenna on my handhelds. The teeth marks were there. One of our cats likes to jump vertically from the...

    Motorola DTR700 Portable Digital Radio 900Mhz

    LOL, having too many radios is almost enough. LOL. :D I sold my DLR1060 fleet to a friend for his business after I got my DTR700 fleet. At first he wasn't sure what he was going to use them for except maybe as rental radios for his customers. Now he and his employees use them ALL the time...

    Motorola Curve Series 900MHz FHSS radio, DTR/DLR compatible, with WiFi

    I too am confused on the WiFi aspect of it. Not much information is available yet. The Voice Assist Button (VAB) on the front is used to control the WiFi features. The Curve likely requires the CPS to set up the WiFi connection before using it. Model: DLR110NBHLAA (HVIN: DLR110NB1) The...

    Motorola DTR700 Portable Digital Radio 900Mhz

    Here's an update with my DTR700 fleet. At 2.5 years old, I know it's getting close to time to re-battery my DTR700 fleet but I still haven't done it yet. Battery life is still OK with them, even with the Battery Saver feature disabled in the CPS. The cost to re-battery my fleet of 6 DTR700...

    Motorola Curve Series 900MHz FHSS radio, DTR/DLR compatible, with WiFi

    This application appeared today on fccid.io: AZ489FT7146 https://fccid.io/AZ489FT7146 Motorola is adding to their 900MHz FHSS digital on-site business radios with the Curve Series. It is a DLR style radio with 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi added to it. I don't understand the "Curve" name to it...

    TKR-850

    The TKR-851 had DTMF capability. No DTMF capability in the TKR-850. I can't help the OP with the programming question. I have fixed my share of PA failures in the TKR-850 and TKR-750. The 850 is notorious for PA failures, especially in early Version 1 units. Newer Version 2 units have been...

    Target Digital Radios

    If the Target store the OP is talking about is using DLR radios then there's a good chance they are simply using them right out of the box at the factory default settings like FRS bubble packs. If this is the case then they can be easily monitored with another defaulted DLR or DTR radio. If...

    Target Digital Radios

    They will work well in DT mode. Performance should be identical to the legacy DTRs, at least the DTR410. My wife (G/F at the time) and I had a pair of i355 NEXTEL phones back in the day and we used the DT feature. The Tx power output in DT mode is 890mW (+29.5dBm), same as the legacy DTRs...

    Target Digital Radios

    What alcahuete said. The DTRs and the DLRs are spinoffs from the Direct Talk feature. The legacy DTR 410/550/650 models shared a common design with a NEXTEL iDEN phone when the phone and the DTRs were first developed. The DTRs and the DLRs use the same FHSS digital protocol but were coded...

    Target Digital Radios

    This reminds me of a funny but related story I have posted about in other DTR/DLR related threads. I actually have had a case where a guy who knew what they were doing tried to listen to my wife and I when we were using our DTR radios at a ham flea market. He failed of course. LOL. This was at...

    Target Digital Radios

    Could these radios have been the legacy DTR410/550/650 models?? The 410 came out in 2005 and the 550/650 models came out around 2006 according to their FCC ID grant dates. That's a year or so before the first iPhone came out. The legacy DTR410/550/650 models had a couple of firmware updates...

    Target Digital Radios

    If they are in fact using DLR radios, don't bother with the SDS100. You will get nothing, not even Close Call hits. The DLRs and DTRs use a hopset of 50 frequencies spread out across the entire 902-928MHz band and transmit no longer than 90ms on any given frequency in the hopset. This works...

    Target Digital Radios

    I believe Walmart* from what I read is moving to a particular Samsung smartphone and uses their in-store WiFi. This is unrelated to the 900MHz DLRs. As jaspence said, the only inexpensive and practical way to monitor them is to have one yourself, AND it has to be set to the same frequency...
