If I understand correctly a previous post here, the repeaters are Moto TRBO only; no mixed mode operation, right? What about the portables? Can they be programmed for both analog and Moto TRBO and scan across both seamlessly? I guess for that matter, what about just Moto TRBO scanning on a transceiver? Does it behave similar to analog scanning or is it not as robust? Say for example, can you have dual level priority or just single level priority?
Initially, the TRBO repeaters had to be programmed either analog, or digital...there was no 'mixed mode' available. It is now an option in later firmware revisions, but it's an option you have to pay for to enable in the repeater.
The field radios themselves can scan across both analog & digital channels, no problem. You can set 2 priority levels in the scan settings.
