Default Radio system at my part time job...Questions about Quantun QP-705

Hey guys, maybe one of the experts out there can help me out.

I just picked up a part time job at a retail store...Canadian Tire...for some extra hours..

We use Quantun 705 radios..

http://www.wirelesssource.ca/product...ct=Quantun-LMR

They operate in the 400 to 470 Mhz range...16 channels. Now, I brought in my 346XT and keyed up the mike, and sure enough, it stopped on 464.500 Mhz..however, I cannot hear anything when I speak into the radio over my scanner. Is this some new tech that cannot be heard, is it some kind of trunked system? How would I know?


Just curious.....

Jason

According to their web site, that is an analog-only radio. Program the freq into a channel (w/o any CTCSS/DCS) and try that way.

Could look at Spectrum Direct to see what frequencies Canadian Tire is licensed for in the city that you work. For Mississauga, it lists 151.115. A number of other stores show 464.6375. The Ontario Forum might have more information.

Sometimes at close range it will stop off frequency. You may have to adjust the freq a little to hear them.

Check 464.500 and 464.550, those are very common UHF itinerant frequencies, and very popular with businesses.

Also, if you are transmitting very close to your scanner, you are likely overloading and desensing it, which will cause issues with the received audio. Try putting the scanner in another room and keying up. Have someone else listening and see which frequency it lands on.

Ha! My dad worked at one of the Canadian Tire stores in that area back a long time ago. He said they often wore roller skates for getting around the warehouse and pulling parts. That was probably back in the late 50's. Both my grandfathers worked for Avro there in your neck of the woods.
