This is my first post and I?m a newbie to two way radios even though I use them for work. I?ve never had to buy some. It?s been interesting researching but now I need to some help from the experts.
I?ve recently bought 6 second hand Motorola Radios which have 4 channels.
The aerials are in a pretty bad state and they have different types of aerials
2 x Stubby UHF HELICAL Antenna [Link Removed]
3 x VHF Whip Antenna
1 x UHF 403-520MHz Whip
We?ll be using them outside and potentially far away from each other. Can anyone give me advice as to which antenna to get? I?ve read that the larger whip aerials give more range. But I?d like to understand more about the frequenzy ranges.
I bought these radios from a lady who ran a boot sale. They are pre programmed. She doesn?t have a license. Didn?t even know that she needed one.
How do I find out what frequenzy these radios use? Will I need a license for these? I?m thinking yes.
