Can anyone please tell me what would be the best Motorola XTS radio to get for the Southern Nevada SNACC radio system?
All that special equipment can be purchased on ebay at any given time. I guess it ain't so special is it. Everything is available to the public if you know where to look.The SNACC system can be monitored by quite a number of scanners, just look for one that is capable of trunk tracking 800 mhz. A Motorola or any professional radio would need to be programmed with special equipment and codes that aren't available to the public.
Best XTS radio would an XTS3000 model 2 or 3 with Host firmware R06.72.00/DSP N08.03.05. This way your covered for 3600 and 9600 TRS systems.
Program the top secure switch to "TX inhibit" on BOTH positions.
There is a word document on the net (google for it), that explains how to use notpad and generate your system key.
Ok Thank you for the information very muchYou would have to break the law in order to program your radio to listen to that system due to the issue with the system key, which falls under the definition of an unauthorized "access device" under Federal law. Even if you made your own key with a hex editor, it's still an unauthorized access device.
Get a scanner.
Using a Moto radio to monitor a Moto trunking system is opening up a huge can of worms that you do not want opened.
DO NOT DO IT. YOU WOULD BE A FOOL. I can not warn you more strongly than that via the internet.
