    XTL/XTS5000 Xts5000 and 2500i encryption compatibility

    I have 2 XTS2500i and 1 XTS5000 all of them have AES256 hardware encryption with either H869 or Q498 multikey. I programmed them all the exact same way in the CPS and the 2 2500i radios communicate encrypted voice just fine. However, I can not get the xts5000 to work encrypted with the 2 2500i...

    Motorola xts5000 vhf won’t transmit pl

    I have a Motorola XTS5000 vhf radio that’s programmed for ham radio but it won’t transmit the pl for my local repeater even though I have everything set up correctly in the software. I’ve tried everything but it transmits on the correct input to the repeater but no pl.

    I have a XTS5000 and noticed that when I turn on Priority scan for the selected channel that the audio clips on channels that aren't the one selected. I assume that this has to do with the "time between priority samples" setting in the programming software. Is there any way to make it so I won't...

    Does anyone know of instructions on how to setup a channel for paging on an XTS5000?
