I’m a newbie to the community, just getting into it.
Currently I’m just using it to transmit on FRS frequencies in the right power, so that I’m not violating any FCC rules. (basically, I’m just using it as a fancy talkabout)
I had a question about a creative use of baofeng’s dual channel, and hope that someone can help me.
I noticed that baofeng has dual channels, and while I can only transmit on 1 channel at a time, my understanding is that I can listen to another channel. Well, that got me thinking:
Can I set up 2 baofengs, so that radio1 is transmitting on channelA, but listening to channelB, while radio2 is transmitting on channelB and listening on channelA?
I’m assuming: if I do that, would I be able to talk and listen at the same time with the other radio? (so that it’s more like a phone where we can talk OVER each other instead of waiting for the end of transmission?)
I realize that this setup would only work with that particular radio pair, but I guess that’s what I’m looking for - some more “natural” communication between 2 radios on road trips between 2 cars.
Question: would something like that be possible?
