Re: Why The XTS 5000

however the control channel is 3400bps. 3600, you mean.. I hope. If it were me, I'd be glad I had analog as an option, assuming they're allowing new analog subscribers. Indiana's SAFE-T system has the best deal. The state footed the bill on infrastructure, and any qualified local government user in...

Well hey, some people make it their life mission to lecture people that "baud" and "bps" aren't the same thing ;) Until Motorola starts calling it 9600bps instead of 9600baud, that's what I'll call it too. Some people say pounds and inches are the same too, but it doesn't make t...

They also have a P25 Expansion board for their comercial tranceivers(TX/RX). I believe about the same price as a D-Star expansion board as well ($230ish).

Yep, that'll work just fine. I highly suggest you program up an entire zone (16 chans) all the same with your talkgroup, and stick the "scan" members from 17-xx so you can't manually access them. You may still add them to the scan-list in CPS no problem. The same problem presented itself ...

I don't have any links Shaun, but Terry isn't talking shit here. The data side of dstar is getting some serious interest. I would have to echo this point.

Damn, that's funny... several states have purchased DSTAR infrastructure on grant. A demonstration locally of data (low-speed and high-speed) has been done for FEMA bigwigs, who are considering a large purchase. Oh, and the feds have largely backed off on this "everything-must-be-P25-for-grant...

APCO-25 is an identified standard. DSTAR may be somewhat mainstream in Asia, but it's kind of useless in North America unless you're one of the types who has already forked over the cash for DSTAR gear and wants something to whine about :P Hammy rigs have wideband receive.
