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.

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.

Best regards.

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.

What are the emissions for the MOTOROLA T5950. How can I tell if they are running on wide or narrowband? I have no documentation to look at.

Here is a link to the user guide: The frequency chart is located on pages 16-17.

We have looked through our 2003 sales documentation on these radios and there is no clear description of whether this radio is completely narrowband, or only narrowband on some channels. The channels labeled FRS are 'family radio service" channels and would all be narrowband. The GMRS frequencies (aka general mobile radio service frequencies) may or may not be narrowband. This is a one watt radio.

You can call Motorola at 800-422-4210 to ask more questions. Or stop by your local Motorola dealer and they should be able to quickly test the radio and tell you if it is operating on wide or narrowband on a particular channel.

Best regards.

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.

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.
