Re: Cobra PR4750WX

I have two way radios here that I bought in 1981 and they still work perfectly well with no speaker issues. My experience is that speaker failure is very rare. You could pull them apart but finding...

Re: DTR Repeater Revisited

The DTR system really isn't geared up for repeaters. It's frequency hopping - picking the clear ones dynamically as required. This means that the fundamental operation of a repeater is compromised....

Re: Brand new baofeng uv5r and blinking red and green light

I must admit I very rarely remove a radio from the charger once it's charged - I are up on nicads and that's how I used them, and now I just carry on the same. Multiple 6 ways chargers just have the...

Re: Motorola APX 6000. Is anyone familiar?

You found a two grand radio under a bush, have no programming software, and have no idea about the radio. I'd guess they've remote killed it already. A battery charger is going to be more than you...

Re: Using a Baofeng-F8HP with a Retevis R27

Ignoring the legality, you say you changed the CTCSS to the ones in the manual? What manual? I see CTCSS in specifications for preprogrammed radios or on licence docs, but never in manual? Have I got...

Re: Help with second hand Motorola CP040

From your use of the word 'Bootsale' I guess you're in the UK?

Assuming that you really have all VHF versions of the radio - you need the programming software and cables to change whatever...

Re: Audio Recording

3.5mm mono to 3.5mm stereo with tip and ring shorted - plus the software most computers have onboard - and if they haven't audacity, which is free. This assumes the radio has a 3.5mm mono output - if...

Re: Baofeng BF888s & QYT KT8900

I think your range requirements is probably going to be the killer, not the licence!

The Baofengs might do half a mile, maybe even less in built up areas - you might get 20 miles hilltop to...

Re: Baofeng BF888s & QYT KT8900

Got you! I suspect that like many radio users, to be 100% compliant with the laws of the country, you have to decide how legit you want to be.
Today I was in a UK church - sorting out some issues...

Re: Baofeng BF888s & QYT KT8900

Ham Radio? We didn't realise you wanted to become a radio ham - that's completely different. Just take the test and use the kit on the amateur bands. everyone would have to do the test, of course,...

Re: Baofeng BF888s & QYT KT8900

That would seem to sort it - create the business, get the licence, use the radios for business purposes.

I'm happy talking to my son on our business repeater - I don't think anyone is actually...

Re: Midland mxt 115 microphone sounda low

It's almost certainly nothing to do with the microphone. The issue is likely to be deviation - an internal adjustment of the movement away from the centre frequency when you speak. The audio is...

Re: Baofeng BF888s & QYT KT8900

UK question for the US experts. Here, it is possible for an individual to apply for a business licence to use for business purposes. So if you have some kind of non-domestic connection, like a club,...

Re: Baofeng BF888s & QYT KT8900

In the UK, you could get a licence and be up and running legally with this kit in less than an hour - but I understand the US situation has changed recently. If you are here, it's easy, but in the US...

Re: Product suggestion

Re: HAM radio as scanner

I suppose it does work in practice - the different tones cutting out the chatter from other users to a large degree - so they work as if there are more actual frequencies. Here in the UK it's...

Re: Baofeng GT-5TP Uses?

No offence intended but I'm starting to get really niggled by the notion that taking the (in my opinion) far too simple ham radio exam is the solution to family and friend communications. With family...

Re: HAM radio as scanner

I had to smile when you said you reading a lot about ham - I had visions about piles of food, and people eating ham sandwiches? Remember that HAM is an abbreviation of amateur - as in amateur radio....

Re: Static and Signal Loss

Loads seem to use switch mode PSUs, even when the operating voltage is 12V! Over complication of something inherently simple, but it does seem pretty common, rather than use heat dissipating...

Re: Motorola BPR40 question

If you buy radios from a proper source, and not from ebay or direct from China, then the supplier as part oil the deal will programme your radios so they work properly, and do what you need. It's...
