xts3000 display replacement

Postby VE3TUH » Thu Oct 31, 2019 3:56 pm

Hello guys. I am sorry if this is easily searched, I have tried and my search function does not seem to be working currently. I have a couple of xts3000 vhf's with bad displays, I am wondering if I can purchase those cheap 800 mhz units off ebay for using the displays out of them, I seem to remember there was possibly an issue with different displays being used between frequency bands. Or maby that was the xts5000. Appreciate your advice!

yes but there may be a firmware compatibility issue.

The latest displays required the firmware above a certain level ...there was an SRN and Motorola did provide the firmware update for awhile.

Someone may know the minimum or provide the SRN with the info.

Worst case is try it and if you need the later firmware move the controller over as long as it's not the 6.X vintage firmware which supported P25 trunking on 800 only.

Not sure if 6.X works outside of 800 may but was never supported.

I do not remember all the details but IIRC Motorola FSB0047 has something to do with this.
