    I'm hearing a fair number of transmissions on 822.5375MHz PL 123.0, the input for pre-rebanding CMARS Green, here in Ventura with decent signal strength, somewhere in the -95dBm ballpark. I can only hear a single base station (which appears to be linked via wireline, showing 2175 Hz notch), but...

    Problem with Motorola XTS3000 Model III

    800 Mhz yagi eliminates multipath on P25

    In my area, there is a P25 system which continues to expand and has 13 towers within my county alone. The multipath from overlapping signals on the same frequency makes reception annoying and often unintelligible in mobile or portable listening. I have tried various adjustments to my Whistler...

    XTL1500 800 MHz is it possible to reverse the in/out frequency?

    Is the 800 MHz radio capable of transmitting on the input frequency and receiving on the output frequency like the UHF model? I am aware that the frequency split for UHF is 3 or 5 MHz where the 800 band is 45 MHz I don't have a code plug to see if the CPS software will accept or reject the...

    End of radio transmission "click"

    Hello out there, I was wondering what the "click" or "tick" noise is at the end of a radio transmission. I hear it at the end of a 800 mhz radio transmission and some times the end of a VHF radio transmission. Its not MDC, MODAT, or DTMF. Just curious to what it is. Thanks!!!

    Tuned UHF Antenna

    Hey guys! I'm looking for a BNC antenna tuned to both the UHF-T (450-512) and 700/800 MHz bands for base station mounting. A simple whip is fine; not looking for anything bulky, like a log-periodic, Yagi, or a discone. Thanks!
