Programming the P2 Scanners for DMR / MOTOTRBO

From The RadioReference Wiki

Please document any tips and tricks for programming DMR and MOTOTRBO systems, manually or with ProScan or ARC-XT, here


Check Your Firmware Version

Required: The following firmware versions are required to copy DMR / MOTOTRBO. These are paid upgrades and applied (using the front port on the BCD996P2) using BC VUP3 If you have questions / problems with the upgrade, please post in the Uniden Tech Support Forum.

Notes
  1. If your scanner's serial number starts with 378A, be sure to use ONLY this (or newer) version. The scanner will stop working using earlier versions. If your scanner's serial number starts with 378Z, you can update to this (or newer) versions.
  2. If your scanner's serial number starts with 379B, be sure to use ONLY this (or newer) version. The scanner will stop working using earlier versions. If your scanner's serial number starts with 379Z, you can update to this (or newer) versions.


General and How Tos

Why won't my scanner receive DMR on Slot 1 and or Slot 2
  • Try reversing Slot numbers compared to System's Slot numbering.


On DMR I can't see the Flavor Type, Color Code or Slot
  • Display Mode 1 - will show the flavor (CON, CAP, XPT, etc).
  • Display Mode 2 - will show the Color Code.
  • Display Mode 3 - will show the slot.


Can You Program a frequency on the 325P2 or 996P2 to show DMR information?
  • Yes. When you program it, press Hold and set the mode to Digital`
  • Press Func + 6. There are 3 modes; Mode 1 shows NXDN or DMR, Mode 2 shows CC or RAN, Mode 3 shows slot or UID


Can the 325P2 and 996P2 search for a NAC (P25), Color Code (DMR), RAN or Area (NXDN)?
  • Yes. Go to Srch/CloCall Opt, then Tone/Code Search, then NAC/CC/RAN/Area.


System Types

Capacity Types and Connect Plus Systems

If the system is in the database as a MOTOTRBO Capacity Max or Connect Plus system, where can I find the color code, LCN and LSN?
Site Frequency Table
  1. Go to the database listing
  2. Click on a site name under Name
  3. On the next form, go all the way to the bottom and look on the left for the Site Frequency Table. An example is shown on the right


Hytera Systems

How Can I find the correct LCN to use in Uniden scanners for a Hytera System?
Site Frequency Table
  1. If it's in the database, go to the frequency listing
  2. Click on a site name under Name
  3. On the next form, go all the way to the bottom and look on the left for the Site Frequency Table. An example is shown on the right
  4. Take the channel number, reduce it by 1 and divide the result by 2. This will be the LCN that Uniden scanners will recognize


Tier III (Trunking) Systems

Is there a way to calculate the frequency from the LCN in a Tier III system?
