• 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.

So

I want to add some of the US National Interop Frequencies to an XTS5k that I am purposing as a scanner.

Here are a couple of them: 769.13125 799.13125 769.63125 799.63125
770.13125 800.13125

I have access to CPS 20. It red boxes each of these.

I was told it was a step issue.

I understand step in older radios, like narrowbanding, right?

I don't have any experience in 700Mhz, and am trying to learn. These are valid frequencies from an authoritative source, my exemplar radio is rebanded and up to date on firmware.

What's going on here?

If, for some reason, you just can't shove a 125/375/875 into an XTS radio, then what is a fair rounding procedure that will put it close enough that there isn't issues with receive radios that will?

What am I missing here? I searched CPS and only found where I could change an intermediate filter.

This is going to bug me, and I am certain it's a simple answer I just can't see.


Thoughts?


Thanks in advance

Just FYI, most agencies that I know program the 8CALL90 set of Nationwide interop channels. All of my work radios have them in there and I have heard traffic in numerous cities across the country on these channels, mainly in larger cities. Never heard of agencies using the 700 MHz interops. But you may as well program the 700 and 800 channels.

The OP is in an area covered by 700 MHz systems. It makes perfect sense why he wants them in his radios. What applies to you and your area doesn't necessarily apply to everyone else. :wink:

Yeah, I have a few of those that are mandated by our State FOG. I'm working my way through State FOG, then I'll start loading NIFOG (I know what I said initially, lol)

Change your transmit deviation to 2.5khz.
BAM.

Thank you sir.

FYI: Keep in mind all 700 interop are P25 phase1 with TX NAC $293 and RX NAC $F7E.
$F7E is the digital equivalent of carrier squelch in analog.

I would set RX as mixed, just in case there are floaters out there, up to you though.
