• 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.

AstroP25 / Xtl-2500 Multiple scan lists

Good day,

I am programming my XTL-2500 and need some guidance with scan lists. As in a separate list for each zone.

Some pertinent information.

The radio was tested/tuned by a /\/\ technician and I have a good base code plug & copies to work with.
I have a valid copy of RVN4186AX

I have several conventional zones/modes programmed, & a separate scan list for each zone. The problem is, no matter which zone I go to it defaults to the first zone's scan list. The other lists are completely ignored.

All the conventional zones/modes have been programmed in personality 1.

In doing some looking, I found if I need to add P25 modes, a p25 personality needs to be added. Do I need to add a new personality for each zone (and add those modes to it) to get the scan list for that zone to actually work?

Thank you in advance.

If you do find out if you can set up multiple scan lists, please let us know. I would love to have a few on my radio (I am purchasing an XTL5000 this week, and would like to have one for fire/EMS, one for fire/EMS/law, and one for railroad frequencies.

I will try to add a new personality, create a zone, modes & scan list to put in it and see how that goes. Will post how it goes either way.

Ok, I answered my own question on setting up multiple scan lists. Here are the steps I took to do it.

1. Create a new personality for each zone I wanted a separate list for. Make sure you have it configured the want you want/need it.
2. Add a new zone, and assign the modes to (one of) the new personalities in the Personality # drop down list in the zone/Channels tab.
3. Create a scan list for the new zone.
4. Select the scan list in the drop-down Scan List Selection under the Scan tab for the desired personality.
