VHF/UHF Radios


I purchased this Motorola Astro XTS3000 Model III VHF radio thinking I'd get into digital communications.
I've had this radio about a month or so, and realized I really know nothing about this mode, other than these radios are much more complex to deal with than most amateur equipment, and I have no one else I know involved in it - so I decided to sell it to fund other radio equipment better suited to my immediate interests. Honestly, I'm completely ignorant about this radio (part of the reason I lost interest quickly), so I can't provide any technical assistance. I know it works, as it was demonstrated to my by the original seller (who is heavily into this stuff), and I have the manual on a disc. It is currently programmed with several Ventura County, CA 2-meter freqs, and comes with a virtually brand new Motorola battery, a nearly new programming cable, battery charger and power cord, and an Otto Communications professional hand microphone.

I know that there is information about the capabilities of this radio coded in the Flashport code, which is visible in the pics. I was told it had the most up-to-date programming available for this model installed. It does digital and analog, and is a Model III with full keypad (256 channels), but I have no idea what else it does - so my ignorance is your gain. This is a used radio, in good functioning condition, but as with most of these radios, it has some battle scars from it's time in the public service sector.

I paid $350 for it - I'll take $275 Cash / Paypal shipped CONUS.
