Default Newbie on the Hytera PT580H

Good Day Y'all!

I am a newbie with some expensive real estate, the Hytera PT580H. Actually, I am a program director at the University and purchased 2 Hytera PT580H for communication among faculty and staff. Apparently, I was not able to get my hands on basic 2 way walkie talkies in the Kingdom since for some odd reason, they are banned here and trying to find a seller is next to impossible.

After 2 months of researching and meeting contact, one Hytera rep helped out to procure 2 of these devices to test and if we like them, we will order more (all this is being done via unofficial channels).

This device is a Tetra handheld with TMO and DMO settings with a power output of 1 Watt. 2 questions below:

1. What is the best way to increase coverage (i know a repeater will help, but they are also banned) between these 2 devices?

2. Is there a way to set TMO between only these 2 radios rather than on DMO?


Any help or/and guidance would greatly be appreciated. Thank you!!!

Using a DMO Repeater, which is either a portable or, perhaps better, a mobile TETRA radio, preferably installed at a fixed location with a simple antenna system to provide coverage where you need it.

No.

Racoon,

Thank you for taking time out to reply and answering my questions. I like the solution you presented, however due to some "stupid" reason the local Hytera dealer informed me that repeaters are banned in the Kingdom, which is beyond me at the moment.

Unless, there is a way to build a repeater in-house, it seems almost impossible to get a DMO repeater from Hytera.

I have had friends who attempted to bring in repeaters, but they got sent back from customs.

Truly, this is just annoying.

Just to clarify - a 'DMO repeater' is not a simple booster / RF amplifier that hangs on the wall but another TETRA terminal that acts as a repeater for DMO signals. If you are allowed to operate TETRA terminals in DMO anyway then I doubt that a TETRA terminal with DMO repeater function would be prohibited. Dunno though if Hytera offers terminals with that feature but Cassidian / Airbus, Motorola and Sepura do (maybe others as well).
