The radio treats 83 the same as 80. If you were to convert the Uniden 80 to Motorola the talkgroup would be 008 or 800005 on a Maxtrac. The 0 is a normal conversation, the 3 is a crosspatch talkgroup function. See Tom Swisher's site for info about converting talkgroups: http://www.wa8pyr.net/800mhzt...
