    Default XTS3000 with ASTRO25 firmware. Will it work?

    Has anyone gotten an XTS3000 (800 mhz, 9600, 6.72, 548008-000480-9) to work properly on a Harris P25 simul system?

    I think it's pretty safe to say that no one has gotten an 800 MHz XTS3000 to work on a VHF Harris P25 system

    Sorry for the confusion. Meaning a VHF xts3000 on a P25 9600 system. (Specifically a Harris VHF 9600 CAI exclusive)

    I heard from a friend that the XTS3000 won't do a Harris system that has their default settings with a XTS3000, as the base frequency for the Harris system is off from the Motorola by 12.5 KHz. Motorola won't do anything special to change the abilities in the ASTRO line to make it so you can change that setting, and short of changing the settings in the Harris system, there's nothing you can do. You have to move up to the ASTRO25 line to be able to operate on the system.

    The only freq band an XTS3000, Astro Saber or Astro Spectra will ever do 9600 baud on is a 800 MHZ. While a UHF or VHF can be tricked into having the 9600 flash and firmware the structure was never in place to support it in the CPS and and firmware.

    Thank you guys so much. Dissapointing, but very helpful. I guess I'll have to shell out a few more bucks to go to the ASTRO25 line.
