Re: Radio compatibility

If they can be set to the same frequency and have any matching CTCSS tones you may be using, then they should work fine. It goes wrong once you have digital kit that is far more difficult to...

Re: programming walkie talkie for multiple frequencies

As long as all the radios work in sensible and legal bands, then you should be able to do this. I cannot speak for the US, but some schools here stupidly use the licence exempt channels, and here...

Re: Replacement Antenna's

My bad - I hadn't realised we weren't talking about the Motorolas and had moved to CB - which I know little about.

Re: Replacement Antenna's

Fibreglass body vehicle antennas exist for many bands, typically marine band, but for vehicle use you need a balanced antenna as the ground plane, as you say, doesn't exist.

Sleeve dipoles are...

Re: Motorola CT250

You also have the small problem of finding out what tone access system is in operation and duplicating that. If you have the right kit, then that's just a case of being close to a radio with a...

Re: Banking Hall Concierge Radio setup

If you use a proper radio dealer, they might be able to set up radios to show in the display who is talking, or where they are or loads of extra features. Amazon sell cardboard boxes with unknown...

Re: Repeater- Distance

Realistically in reasonably flat terrain, a service area of around 20 miles for decent repeater is normal, but in hilly territory it could be more if the repeater is on the top of a mountain, or less...

Re: Kirisun Radios - Quality of the components

I'd guess they using one of the 5 yr licence, VHF for UHF business packages - "Business Light" is the term here. Clusters of channels, shared on a non-interference, but unprotected basis. Loads of...

Re: Kirisun Radios - Quality of the components

I'm very confused. The Kirisun PT3600 is a budget radio, and I can buy them for the price you are spending on repairs? They're not going to survive drops on solid ground - concrete, for example and...

Re: Internally programmable Mobile Radio??

Re: Handheld radios for child hiker suggestions please

The honest answer to this one is always that any range over very short is often down to luck. The real physics is simply what's called path loss. So anything in-between the two antennas reduces...

Re: How do I Convert Headset From 3.5mm to 2.5mm????

This really is NOT rocket science. The headset has pretty standard tinsel cable which is a real pain to solder. The first thing to do is identify the two pairs in the 4 core cable. find an AA battery...

Re: Baofeng BF-F8+

In the UK, the legal situation currently is this. With an FM only radio, you can NOT use the PMR446 licence free band, as the radio is too powerful, and has a detachable antenna. You can listen to...

Re: Handheld radios for child hiker suggestions please

What kind of range are you thinking? Range can be extremely poor and topography dependent. Even a mile can really be pushing it, reliability wise.

Re: Password on Motorola DP3400

The real issue for you is signal strength, and with your plant, loads of barriers to and reflectors of RF. I'm not familiar with the licence system in the US, but what you need is a repeater with the...

Re: Using Motorola mobile radio as a REPEATER and a 2 way

You won't find the usual commercial radios offering repeater capability. If the vehicle radios can access the system, then I tend to agree that using them would be the simple solution - BUT - in band...

Re: radio vs CB help

I think you've got the wrong terminology. I wonder - do you really mean CB, or are you just calling a vehicle mounted radio a CB?

If you want a radio system - then it can happily be a mix of...

Re: Audio In basestation

How did you put the radio into TX? On a radio with VOX capability, then you could do it by recording the alert with a starting tone - which would work, but your radio doesn't have VOX, does it? If it...

Re: Seeking help with Kenwood TK-360 radios

DOS? The software should work perfectly on Windows - are you sure you have the right version? You need KPG-56D which works fine on Windows.

Re: Questions about repeater and antenna setup

So you're doing a hierarchy access then? some get priority and use the A repeater, and the other is an overflow - and the problem is the overflow is a poor performer?

Silly question, but have you...

Re: Audio In basestation

You could do this with a base station, or even bodge a cable to use a portable, but the snag is putting the unit into TX - the computer needs to be able to do this - so that adds a bit of...
