UHF XTS3000, what do I need?

Postby Metro12 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 6:57 am

Ok, I have programmed radios before (moto HT1550, CDM1550, kenwood 2180,3180 etc). I have a XTS2500 800mhz that my department is going to program, but I would like to also get an XTS3000 UHF radio. What will I need to program the UHF radio? Where can I buy the software? Will the CPS software work, or do I need to get the RSS? Will the software and hardware needed for the XTS3000 UHF, also be compatiable to program the XTS2500 800 radio? I currently have the RIB and interface cables for HT1000s, with the old RS232 hook-up. Thanks in advance for the help, and please be gentle, this is my first post on your boards!!

Hi,

First, welcome on board ;-)

For programming your XTS3000, you need :
- A RIB with a specific cable to be connected between you RIB and your radio (can be find easely on ebay)
- a programm

I recommend that you use the last program revision : ASTRO Saber & XTS 3000 CPS revision R05.02.00 or more to be able to read most of programed radio.

For the RIB, this can be the same than used for MTS2000

I think you also have to read carefully some topic on this forum to help you in your first step.

1. 2500/5000 uses a ribless cable and has its own CPS.
2. XTS3K/Astro Saber uses a RIB and also has its own CPS.
(There is also an older but still usable DOS RSS for the XTS3K and
Astro Sabers that works fine; it's called V9.05, but you can't use
it if your radio's been programmed with CPS already.)

So the short version of the story is that each programming setup is completely different from the other one.

Welcome to the Batboard.

Ok two more questions: #1Can I use a HLN 4008A Rib? #2 The serial port on the Rib is different (more pins bigger) than the XTS 3000 cable, is there a adaptor or something? 8)
