Provided that your 2-way radio has the feature, there should be either a dedicated weather button or somewhere in the menus. Not sure what model you have. If it is a more advanced radio where you can set the frequency, the list of weather broadcast frequencies taken from NOAA are listed below. Two way radios are normally automatically programmed to one of these frequencies and usually require a push of a button.
Nationwide Station Listing Using Broadcast Frequencies
I don't know where you are located, but I have a feeling that you are using two incompatible systems.
The PMR (Personal Mobil Radio) is build for the European market. The allocated frequencies for it's 8 channels are from 446.00625 Mhz to 446.09375 Mhz. Your Motorola is for the US market GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) and FRS (Family Radio Service) and it's channels are allocated from 462 Mhz and 467 Mhz area.
Bottom line is, since their channels are on different frequencies, they can't talk to each other.
BTW, it would be illegal to use the European radio in the US and visa versa. You could be interferring with other radio services.
"No longer supported" means they don't repair them at their repair depot anymore. However, software for most models is still available. All Motorola software is by subscription, and they choose who can obtain a subscription. You must be a Channel Partner (dealer) or meet their criteria for obtaining it.
Most 800 MHz radios are trunking radios, and require a tower system to operate. Many towers in this bandsplit have been shutdown or retired due to changes in the licensing/availability of 800 MHz frequencies.
If you are planning on operating the radios with a tower system, see the owner of the system for programming. If you are wanting to use the radios in simplex (radio-to-radio), you could get them programmed at a full-line Motorola dealer. You will need to provide your FCC assigned frequencies.
The model number you mention is incomplete, and I could not determine which of the softwares you might need.
Sorry, but the XTN446 has only the 8 channels pre-programmed by the manufacturer.
Frequencies 446.00625 MHz
No. CB's operate at the 27 MHz on 22 predetermined frequencies allowed for Citizen Band radios; and your Motorola XV1100 radio is a VHF 150-170 MHz radio with a set amount of built in frequencies to choose from, designed for business use.
Not sure what you want.....VHF band ius approximatly 130mhz to 175 mhz..... in that VHF band there is a commercial VHF band aprox. 155 mhz to 175...... the amateur radio vhf band is aprox. 135 to 150mhz.
With amateur radio, any freq in that range can be used...... with commercial radio the FCC cangive a company any freq. in that range also.
If you are looking for FRS/GMRS frequencies they are UHF freqs not VHF.
So I'm not sure exactly what you want......sounds like you might want to program in FRS freqs into an Icom amateur radio. If thats the case you will need an Icom that will do UHF freqs.
First of all, any radio in the right frequency will work with any other, to work just need the following features:
-Frequency, 154.700 which is correct as you said.
- the Squelch code, this could be PL or DPL.
The XV2100 has a table of codes that you can try, as you dont know this code form the Kenwood, you will need to check one by one.
If you have the chance to send the Kenwood to some to "Read" the radio parameters( freq.,Code, ETc) you can look those parameters on the XV.
