Yes. It is programmable to either wideband or narrowband on each channel. All current model VHF and UHF Motorola radios are narrowband capable.

Best regards.

I also have GP300 radios how do you get a License for them

The easiest way is to contact a two way radio dealer. The FCC has the forms, but they are extremely confusing. Plus, the radio shop will know what frequency band you can legally use. They can also do the programming. Please note, that radio is very old by the FCC's standards. Some models are capable of something called narrowband, most are not. If your radio cannot do narrowband, they are junk in that they cannot be licensed or legally transmit in the USA.

I have a motorola cp185, is this radio capable of doing fleet sync I.d.

No. FleetSync is a feature of Kenwood radios. The CP185 does not have FleetSync capability, nor can we find any documentation saying it has Motorola's MDC1200 signalling. (Also note: FleetSync and MDC1200 are not compatible with one another.)

Best regards.

Narrowband or wideband

The answer to your question depends on the radio model. Some radios have the capability when being programmed to have wide- or narrowband designated by channel. An example would be current model Motorola business/commercial radios such as the CP200.

Radios produced in the early 2000s were sometimes manufacturered in just one type of channel spacing. In these radios the entire radio is either wideband or narrowband.

In radios produced prior to 2000, most all were wideband only.

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.

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

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.

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.
