Frequency Compatibility

The MOTOTRBO XPR 3500e portable two-way radio is compatible with the Ultra High Frequency (UHF) and Very High Frequency (VHF) bands.

Specifically, the VHF model supports 136-174 MHz at a power output rating of up to 5 watts. The UHF model supports 403-512 MHz at a power output rating of up to 4 watts.

Technology Compatibility


Analog technology is a legacy method of communication that enables the transmission of voice between users over dedicated frequencies. While analog technology has served its purpose effectively for decades, it is rapidly being replaced by digital technology, which offers enhanced clarity, security, and efficiency in communication. Digital technology also provides for the ability to incorporate data protocols, whereas analog operation is typically voice communication only. Nevertheless, analog technology remains a critical part of the legacy infrastructure for many land mobile radio systems, particularly in regions where digital upgrades may still be pending.


Digital technology represents a modern approach to wireless communication. Unlike analog technology, which uses continuous waveforms, digital technology encodes voice and data into discrete, binary code. This transformation allows for more efficient and secure transmission of information over radio waves. Digital technology offers several advantages, including improved voice clarity, reduced interference, and the ability to transmit data alongside voice communication. It also enables advanced features like encryption for secure conversations, GPS tracking for location services, and the integration of various applications for enhanced functionality. Digital technology has become the standard for many public safety agencies, commercial businesses, and organizations relying on reliable and efficient communication in their operations, making it a crucial component of modern land mobile radio systems.

Motorola Two-Way Radio Systems

Direct Mode

All MOTOTRBO two-way radios have the capability to connect directly: radio-to-radio, for basic voice, data, text, and application support. However, this approach has limitations.


A conventional system is a step up from basic radio-to-radio communications. Radios communicate via a high-power repeater, giving better coverage and more centralized control.

Capacity Plus

Expand the capacity and extend the coverage of Motorola MOTOTRBO digital two-way radios with this entry-level digital trunking system. Up To 15 Sites / Up To 1600 Users Per Site*

IP Site Connect

Use your IP network to extend the voice and data capabilities of MOTOTRBO by linking repeaters together. You can create a continuous network that covers 15  locations.
