Re: VHF / UHF IP Site Connect

I'm not familiar with the CP200d so this could be out-of-date. According to these docs while the CP200d does do conventional Mototrbo it doesn't do IP Site Connect: https://www.motorolasolutions.com/content/dam/msi/docs/business/product_lines/mototrbo/_documents/_static_files/mototrbo_ataglance_bro...

Re: VHF / UHF IP Site Connect

First, if you are IP SITE CONNECTING a UHF system with a VHF system, you cannot roam between sites anyway. The only thing the IPSC enhancement gives you is the ability to enter a channel pool and roam list. Just put the frequencies, color codes, talk groups and time slots into the CP200d and it wil...

Sorry to dig up a dated thread. I'm just now getting around to starting this project. I came across some documentation that stated that the CP200d is not compatible with IP Site Connect. Is it just that it won't seamlessly roam between zones or will it not function at all? I just need to pass both t...

I have a VHF MOTOTRBO system that has been running pretty stable for several years, but we've always had difficultly with consistent coverage inside of certain buildings.

Re: XPR8300 Interference & Hang Time

It sounds like you may have a low-level spur being generated by the transmitter, or a low-level IM product generated by the antenna. Can you perhaps put a tap inline with the receive port of the repeater and sniff that? I'll try to barrow a service monitor again and give it a shot. In reference to ...

On the XPR8300 repeater can you add multiple analog channels (same frequencies, but with different PL/DPL codes?) I see the CPS software seems to allow it, but I have not actually tried this on a production unit?

Re: Multiple radios on single antenna
