    Default XTS5000 Zone display

    Hi all.
    I just recently purchased an XTS5000 Model II with R16.00 host firmware in it.
    Have programmed the radio fine, but I am wondering how to enable the currently selected zone
    display on the screen (Z1, Z2 etc) that appears before the channel name.
    I cannot find where to enable this in the CPS (using CPS R16.00).
    Thanks. Regards, Chris. VK3TYG

    Radio Configuration, Dislplay & Menu, General, Text Configuration, Channel Text Size.

    Make sure that Zone Text Size is not showing as none. If so, reduce the Channel Text Size to a lower number and the Zone Text Size will increase.

    Thanks squeaky. This was exactly it ! The channel text size was too big.
    Who would have thought of this...
    Cheers, Chris.

    My CPS software will not even allow me to name the zones. Is this feature under a specific Codeplug feature?

    If the Zone text is shaded out, then follow the above instructions in post 2. You probably have your channel text set to 12 and the zone text set to none.

    You can increase the size of the zone name but you also have to sacrifise the channel name by decreasing its size. The overall size of zone name and channel name is limited to 12, if I can remember correctly (more or less).
