Bob, that TRAXAR is only capable of 800 MHz trunked operation on Motorola Type
I systems. It is completely useless to you as a ham. It can not be converted to
the 450 band at all. Programming one of these usually requires Motorola's
assistance.

That model TRAXAR is designed for 15-20 watts of RF power. Motorola has
discontinued support on these units and parts are becoming scarce. They have a
*** habit of the PLL falling out of lock - a characteristic design flaw on
the main board of the 800 MHz TRAXAR and its sister MOSTAR was never fixed by
Motorola, so once every 6 to 12 months, you have to take the big shield off the
main board, clean all the contact points where the shield meets the board and
retorque it back down evenly. They are a real pain in the behind.

I would save the world any further agony by dropping it in the nearest
landfill.
