Default Duplexer check out

Greetings. I have a 50 watt mobile (flatpack) UHF duplexer model SGQ889 made by Weixun Electron Co. LTD. that is tuned (or is supposively tuned ) for 462.650/467.650 MHz. Was wondering if there is anyone in or around the Leesburg, Florida area that is willing and able to check this out for me to see if it correctly tuned. It has 6 cavities. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at: N4GOZ1@aol.com Thanks for reading. Dave

I recently had to go to a commercial two-way radio shop to have mine re-tuned. Special equipment is required to do it right. If you let them know that you are a ham and you're not in a big hurry, you MIGHT get a special deal. There must be at least one ham-friendly dealer in Orlando or Ocala! Best of luck.

Mine was a full-sized TX/RX UHF. I used a small, commercial two-way shop in Asheville (NC) and it cost me $70.00 (plus tax).

My shop does duplexer tuning. but they are in Southern California. So maybe even with the USPO Flat rate shipping for the 'flatpac' duplexer it would be in the $ 60 range and no tax on labor.
