• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi all im new to the form and young and green but thanks for having me. Currently I have some CDM 1250s and I was given a rick and 2 16 pin cables to go with it. Im trying to figure out how to hook it up as a repeater but when I set the accessory pins to rick RX on one radio and rick TX on the other nothing seems to be working. Anyone have any idea or advice? Thanks in advance!

It would help to know two things; the frequencies you are using and what is a rick?

A Rick is a simple repeater controlloer, made to easily interface Motorola radios to make light duty repeaters.

wow it's been almost a year and no helpful replies. I too recently obtained a pair of CDM1250s and a RICK with cables and have been floundering trying to figure out the correct setup for creating a duplex repeater.

Anyone watching who can offer some tips?

Thanks
