To Whom it May Concern:
I work on the National Ski Patrol (NSP) at my local ski area. We have a radio system which operates on frequency 154.5700 Mhz (VHF) We have several Kenwood TK-260 radios. We recently purchased a new Motorola XTN xv2100. Both radios are operating at 154.5700 Mhz. However, the new Motorola radio when transmitting can only be received by other Motorola Radios (several other types and models but all other Motorola models pick it up). The Kenwoods do not receive the transmissions from the xv2100. However, the transmission from the Kenwood tk-260 is received by the xv2100 just fine. Why can't the Kenwood tk-260 receive the Motorola xv2100 radio transmissions?
Thanks for any help you might have in solving this issue!

Re: Motorola and Kenwood compatibility....
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.

Ski-related events can sometimes be a little hard to find. Some things you could try include:
Joining Facebook groups There are lots of different Facebook groups that are open for skiers heading to a particular resort. If you have a resort in mind like Hotham or Falls Creek, try joining the Facebook group and you should be able to find out a little more about events that are happening during the ski season.
Checking out Ski Websites Websites that are dedicated to skiing and other mountain sports often feature information about ski events worldwide. For example, Mountain Watch has a full section of their site dedicated to keeping ski lovers up to date with events that are happening at major ski resorts.
For that you need a software called "P2K Commander V-4.0" and its asociated driver. You also need a skin file.
The skin file for motorola V3i can normally be obtained in a .zip file format.
This zip file have one .ski file and normally have 14 .dat file.
You have to copied all the .dat files and one .ski file in the mobile's skin folder for one skin.
Remembered , your old moto skin folder should not be deleted at any cost. 'cause the new skin can use your old skin file....
