Radio Identifers

Our department is in the process of switching to Motorola XTS 2500 and XTL 2500 radios each riding postion will have a portable radio. I am wondering what people are using for radio identifers, I would like to be able to use a 5 character identifer such as E412A which would designate Engine 412's officer. Is it possible to have a 5 character identifier on the Motorola XTS/XTL series radio?Thanks, MikeSee More
