XTR446 is UHF 0.5W while HX750S is VHF 6W.Try it in the forest and the motorola get better range than HX750S(I put in 6W)
Is this normal?And where can I get a better antenna for the HX750S?
Heard that UHF is better for obstruction than VHF,But is it normal that there is a huge difference?one is only .5W while the other is 6W!!
Power is relatively insignificant to range at VHF and above.
You do, I hope, realize that using that HX750S (VHF Marine radio) is illegal in a forest?
It may not be legally used anywhere but on the water, and creeks don’t count.
And illegal marine VHF usage WILL get quite a bit of attention.
Yeah I know it is illegal but I used it in other country.
Oh, I guess that makes it OK then?
Using an American radio service radio in another country can also be highly illegal as well. Some marine freqs are international, but not all.
