Narrowbanding-can you look up serial number to see if capable?

If I have a 2 way radio serial number can you tell me if it is narrow band capable for the FCC mandate to go narrowbanding or can you only look it up by product number?

Yes, it can be looked up by either method, serial number or product number. In a Motorola serial number the first 3 numbers will tell the kind of radio and the next 3 letters will tell where and when it was manufactured.

Best regards.

On our narrowbanding website (www.narrowbandinglaw.com), there is a link to an article from APCO's magazine, where the author tried to list all (that he could find) narrowbandable equipment. Also, there's a link there to Motorola's website, and while I haven't checked lately, they told me that they intended to try to post a list, too.

Frequency for Motorola MU24CVS UHF (4 Channels) 2-Way Radio


This radio has several available frequencies built into the unit:
1 - 464.5000
2 - 464.5500
3 - 467.7625 *
4 - 467.8125 *
5 - 467.8500
6 - 467.8750
7 - 467.9000
8 - 467.9250

You would need to read out each channel to determine what each of the 4 channels is programmed to. Reading out is easy on this unit. With the radio turned off, select the channel with the channel knob, then hold in the PTT button while turning the radio on, immediately it will tell you the frequency number, (if you want to change the freq you can use the PTT button to walk your way up through the numbers to the number you'd like), then if you press the monitor button it will lock in your chosen frequency and it will tell you the private line code (if zero it is turned off), then press the monitor button again to lock everything in. Do this on each channel and you will know how your 4 channel radio is programmed.

Note: This radio is a wideband radio and only a few were produced with narrowband capability. After Jan. 2013 you are required to use narrowband only in the USA. If your MU24 radio has two RED dots above the word Spirit it is narrowband on only frequencies 3 and 4. If your radio has no red dots on the label your radio is wideband only.

Best regards.

I NEED TO KNOW WHAT FREQ. RANGE IS ON THIS SERIAL # 777FWLE408


Sorry, the serial number does not tell the frequency band of the radio. From this serial number I can tell you it is likely an SP50 radio, and it wwas produced Nov. 1996. You would need the model number to know the frequency band. The model number of an SP50 radio beginning with P93 would be VHF, and if P94 it would be UHF.

Note: With the mandated change to narrowband by Jan. 2013, only SP50 radios with a 00 (double zero) in the model number will do the new narrowband. Those models on wideband would have a 20 (twenty) in the model number. Example: P94YQT20AA2 would be a wideband UHF radio.

Best regards.

What model mobile motorola radios and motorola HT1000 portables are narrowband capable?


Most Motorola portables manufactured during the past five years or so are capable of being programmed for narrowband operation. A definite exception is the Saber which is strictly a wideband radio.

The narrowband-capable versions of the HT1000 have a model number ending in "DN." Some of the previous models ending in "CN" may or may not be narrowband-capable.

CAN THE HT1000 PORTABLE 16 CH. BE PROGRAMED VHF NARROW BAND,IFSO WERE CAN I GET IT DONE


The HT1000 change to narrowband depends on the generation of HT1000 you have. If a model made since the year 2000 (or so) it should be able to be either programmed or converted. If it is a pre-2000 (or so) model, it will not be capable.

Programmable narrowband can be done by any authorized Motorola dealer. Conversion to narrowband requires components in the radio to be changed by a qualified electronics technician using approved methods, not necessarily available at every dealer.

Check with your local Motorola dealer to see if they can help you with programming or conversion. If not, repost your model number in a question here on FixYa and we will let you know which scenerio you are facing and give you some suggestions on where you can have it done.

Best regards.

One quick question about narrow band compliancy? our agency uses a Motorola MTR 2000 repeater S/N 474czh0094, MOD. #T5766A 100W. Is this narrow band comliant? Thank you , Lt. Dave Gamache Yreka Police...


The MTR2000 repeater currently available is capable of narrowband (aka 12.5K channel spacing) and wideband (25K channel spacing).
Your serial number indicates your MTR2000 was manufactured in April 1999, which would be around the time narrowbanding began to come on the scene. The only way to know for certain is to have a dealer read out the repeater and see if it is programmed for narrowband. Most-likely it is.

Realistic pro 2020 scanner


The Realistic PRO-2052 is an old (vintage) scanner receiver with fixed AM and FM modes on the bands it cover, as specified by the U.S. band allocation. The PRO-2020 covers only the VHF and UHF frequencies and modes AM and FM is not user selectable. Frequencies can be programmed into any of the 20 memory channels

U.S. Coverage: (varies from state to state and other countries. We don't use 30-50 Mhz here in the Philippines for 2 way mobile communications, except for cordless phones)

30-50 Mhz Lower VHF at FM narrowband only (covers mobile, emergencies, businesses, etc. and
cordless phones)
108-136 Mhz Aircraft band at AM narrowband only
138-174 Mhz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (2 meter band)
410-512 MHz Amateur and Commercial band at FM narrowband only (70 cm band)

If you're trying to select AM or FM for a specified frequency, I'm afraid you can't do that as it is not selectable.

If you are trying to program AM Broadcast frequencies (mediumwave (MW) or FM Broadcast frequencies (FM radio stations), those were not covered by your PRO-2020's microprocessor. Even if you modify your scanner to receive those bands, you will not hear radio transmission properly since the receiver do not decode FM wideband, which is the standard mode for FM broadcast and Television band.
