XPR8400 to Centracom Gold

Alright folks, here comes the "tough" question...

I just recently got a Centracom Gold setup and want to interface my XPR8400 to the punch block. Has anyone done this? If so, can you share the ease of it, wiring diagrams and such? I have the CEB and CIE manuals that came with the setup, but nothing else. I will have to run about 10 feet of cable between where the XPR sits and where the Centracom sits.

Regards,

-Frank C.

Is the XPR8400 running in analog or digital mode?

I won't work in digital, just analog. When you key up from the rear accessory there is no way to specify a time slot or talk group ID. I had this issue interfacing an 8400 with a controller for an amateur repeater in mixed mode.

That's fine, the hookup I'm planning was for the analog side of the repeater anyway...
