    Default Astro Saber III 800mhz and the XTS 1500

    My department is using the xts1500 and im not totaly in love with this radio and have always been an saber fan since my military days. I have finally found an Saber III 800MHz Astro Digital P25 radio and am willing to purchase it but would like to be able to program it myself. Anyones thoughts would be appreciated.

    Yes. Download the CPS and get busy.

    But what type of system are they using? Trunked or conventional? If trunked, 3600 or 9600bps control channel?

    Not to be the party pooper.. But if its a trunked p25 800 system. You may have trouble. Alot of system admins are not keen to personally owned radios on their systems. Especially radios that are 2 generations old. If you are a legitimate user and go through proper channels then you may have a better chance.
