    Default xts3000 Band Change?

    My xts3000 is 800mhz. Now I need vhf. What do I need to do to convert from 800mhz to Vhf?

    New RF board (VHF) and a new s-record, followed by a realignment.

    Wouldn't he be better off just buying a new one? I see a lot of 3K VHFs on eBay all the time, he could probably get more for the 800 than what the VHF would cost him..

    When I said "new", I meant any VHF RF board that might be kicking around. I should've phrased it better. I guess not everyone has spare RF boards lying around like I do. Hah hah.

    And what you said about pricing, is correct.

    Yea, I thought about doing that. Guess I will be looking for a couple of boards or extra radios. I need 2 or 3 VHF, UHF , for the 2 xts3000's and I have 2 EFJ 5100's 900mhz that I need to change.

    Ok, next question is if I buy a model 1 and put it in my model 3, do I just use the rf board or the whole inside. Also will the LCD and buttons work or do it need to be flashed?

    An rf board is an rf board. as long as the radio was a model III then changinfg the rf boards wont change it.
