Im just starting to get into programming and I have some of the MURS channels programmed into my motorola xts300 VHF. Ive tried to look up information to get the TPT onto my radios and Im not getting a clear direction on how to go about doing it. Im aware that its a bit of a process (which is fine for me). If someone can help with this I would really appreciate it. =)

Are you just wanting a beep or are you actually wanting to sound like a trunking radio? For just a beep set up MDC on transmit. May drive other users on the system crazy though.

Such things are used on trunked systems to let the transmitting party know they have been granted a channel with other users in the talkgroup.

For conventional systems, it tells the transmitting party to wait until the MDC ID is transmitted, assuming it goes "in front" of the transmission, versus at the end. Its all owing to system set up - who will be taling compared to who just talked.

Its also beneficial for those inclined to speak too quickly before a repeater is fully engaged and the first part of the transmission is cut out.

All good information, im also looking for the "trunk" PTT tone for the people that tend to cut themselves off at the begining of the transmission. just like what you said in your commemt.

There isn't any way for an XTS3000 to have the TRS TPT without actually being on a TRS. Your only option is as mentioned above and in the referenced older thread which will give you a sidetone on PTT but not a chirp.

An option is to buy a NX200 and enable TPT, with a 150Ms delay... It's Moto-whactastic sounding.

Your only other option is to buy a XTS5000 that has the DVRS option enabled in its flash.
