XTS3000 FPP upgrade

Postby JimmyL1011 » Thu Mar 15, 2012 1:39 pm

Hello One and all:

I have an XTS3000 and I would like to use my radio with the Front Panel Programming (FPP) option. Does anyone know the flash upgrade code needed to field-program the radio? The current configuration is Flash Code 500008-000000-1. In addition, the radio is 403-470 MHz but 430-512 would be more useful. Is this also possible?

Lastly, if it's just a matter of re-programming, does anyone know of any radio shops in the Chicago area who would do the re-programming?

Thanks for any help you can be.

Jim

BTW - I have an actual, licensed and registered disk of the programming and Lab software.

XTS3000 can't do FPP. Was never able to.

How about the out of band reprogramming??? Any possibilities of extending the range to say 480-485?

You can mod the CPS to tell the radio to go as high as you want but in my experience with 403-470 XTS3Ks the VCO won't lock much higher than 483.

Thanks, Joe. 483 would be as high as I'd want to go. I appreciate all your help.

Jim,

I tried that with an XTS3000 that was a 403-470..I wouldnt get much above 477 before it went deaf on everything in the 440-460.. It was an older XTS though. Are you going to try the new P25 CFD stuff up in the 476-480s?
