So you finally have your cable then and I'm not sure and to be honest I just programmed it with all the pmr 446 channels but the battery wouldn't hold its charge so I never got chance to use them to there full capability , either way they were easy to edit from what i remember :)

I don't think the GP580 does P25. The MTS2000 definitely doesn't (to my knowledge). Not sure about the MT6000e, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't. Regular trunking (I assume MPT1327) is not the same as P25. P25 is a very specific standard mainly used in the US, and is almost unheard of anywhere else.

If you want to run them in trunking mode you'll need a trunking controller, and a designated frequency. There was an experimental allocation on 70cm, but I don't think it's there anymore. That doesn't mean you can't set one up again, just that you'll be on your own. Also consider how you'd manage callsigns with numerical ID's, and channels. Trunking is designed to be used on designated networks, it won't play nicely on open channels with other users who are not affiliated to your system. Not impossible to overcome, but something to think about.

Also, remember some older Motorolas will only do wide deviation. You'll need narrow on 446 or you'll be more noticeable (in a Bad Way).
