Question about Motorola HT1000, MTS2000, MTX8000/9000 Compatible 2 Way Radio Battery Eliminator

1 Answer

MTS2000 strange tone? and question about top display.

I have an old mts2000 that was used in LE by a family member years and years ago and just sat around the whole time since. so it is my understanding these require a complicated process with a RIB and some other things i do not understand yet. Anyway it has a 6digit top display that flashes "no sys" which kinda describes itself but im looking for more insight about it. A side from that what would cause it to produce as tone whenever the talk button is pressed? Thanks for any help.

This radio was programmed to work on a networked radio system. They are called many things, but "no sys" means it does not detect the radio system it was programmed for. Look for a channel that says "dir" or "dirc" or like that. It means direct channel, or radio to radio without the range of the system. The PTT or talk button tone is telling you the radio cannot "connect" to the system.

SOURCE: I need Some help with downloading OR buying mts2000 RSS.

The software can only be purchased by a dealer or System Manager the only way to reprogram your radio will be through your Motorola Systems Dealer. Not all Motorola dealers are system dealers, Only those authorized to sell system radios. The MTS200 is a system radio. Sorry, but that is thre rules from Motorola.

MTS non trunking made into a trunking system

Trunking radios are controlled by logging on to a central control - for use unless you have a trunking network with repeaters set up (costs a lot of money) stick to the non trunking versions - they can be reprogrammed to your frequencies and are very useable. without connection to a trunking network the Trunk versions would be better used as a door stop as they are very limited for re-use

No display

LCD display failure after dropage is common. The display would need to be replaced by a qualified Motorola service facility. If the radio functions w/o the display, and you can get by, you could use the radio until you have other needs for service. Flat-rate repair for this style unit is usually around $240.

About mts2000 i

The MTS2000 is a dealer programmable radio, there is no way to know what is in channel 4. You would need to have the radio read-out by a dealer, the print-out from the original programming or know who the dealer was and call them.

if it's a single tone try communicating threw it. some of them have identifiers in them. you hear a beep but other on the same chanel may hear a different tone. this has been added over the past few years due to people talking on top of eachother, it does this to let others know someone is going to talk.

Yes, but depends on the configuration/setup and programming/frequency assignation of the MTS2000.

To my knowledge, the UHF version of the Motorola MTS2000 are designed to operate either in the 403~470Mhz or the 450~512 or 520MHz band.

On the other hand, Motorola TalkAbout Radio are design limited to operate in the FRS band which is 462.5625~462.7250MHZ and/or the GMRS band which is 462.550~467.725.

So technically, both the MTS2000 and the FRS/GMRS share some frequencies. What needs to be done is to re-program the frequency allocation of the MTS2000 into its channels to match the TalkAbouts frequencies. The other way around is not possible. TalkAbouts frequency assignments can not be reprogrammed/changed. Below are typical TalkAbout Channels/Frequencies.de11c4e.jpg

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
