I'm aware of what NAC is. The problem is Moto CPS only allows numbers to be entered. Alpha characters aren't numbers, example: $ k2 a. I just made that one up. How do I convert it to work with CPS software?
Well I respectfully disagree. If you knew what HEX was you would know 'k' is not a valid HEX character.
Hex(base 16) is made up of the same numbers as base 10(dec), plus the ALPHA characters A, B, C, D, E and F to make up the 'extra' 6 characters in base 16. One valid NAC I KNOW is correct is $4CE, used by the RCMP here in Canada.
The NAC $293(hex)=659(base10) $4CE(hex)=1230(base10) if the NAC has a '$' sing in front of it, it is a hex number.
$ k2a is not valid because the letter k is not a valid symbol used in hex.
In a lot of radio programming software, the NAC will need to be entered as a hex value.
Below is a small chart to explain. The left column are normal base 10(DEC) numbers every one uses, the right side is the same DEC number converted to base 16(HEX)
1=$1
2=$2
9=$9
10=$A
11=$B
12=$C
13=$D
15=$F
16=$10
17=$11
20=$14
30=$1E
100=$64
500=$1F4
1000=$3E8
How to convert from DEC to HEX you ask?

Try entering $4CE (do not include the dollar symbol, it is only there to tell you the value is HEX) and let us know how that works out for you.
