Midland MXT275 FM deviation in "repeater" mode

Anyone know what the transmitter FM deviation is for "out of the box" MXT275 micro-mobile transceivers in "repeater" mode on channels 15-22?  Is it the +/- 2.5 kHz (narrowband) FRS deviation, or a more typical +/- 5 kHz (wideband) GMRS deviation?

 

I know the MXT400 transmitter FM deviation can be set via programming cable, but haven't seen any discussion on the MXT275. The MXT275 manual is silent on such matters.

So is the 400 manual. If I had my hands on a MXT275, I'd try the Midland prog. cable with the MXT400 software that's out there now.

I wouldn’t have much hope. The MXT275 appears to be based on a completely different OEM product and, as of yet anyway, nobody seems to have identified it.

My experience with radio programming is that the CCR Part 95 software is OEM specific, and the mainstream vendor Part 90 software is unobtanium for mere mortals.

Part 90 software only difficult to obtain if you're trying to get it both cheap AND legal. If you don't mind spending the money, Kenwood is easy to get from any Dealer, and Motorola isn't always cheap or easy, but if you can spend the time to set up an MOL account (Motorola On Line) it's easy enough to obtain. Otherwise, Ebay has about 100 listings on any given day for copied software burned onto discs - and there are sites out there on the interwebs that offer free downloads - although it's not always current/up to date versions & it's nearly guaranteed to be stolen/unlicensed.
