    Wide or narrow

    Hello, I'm wondering, when it comes to programing a radio to a ham repeater, do you set it as narrowband, mid, or wideband? Couldn't find much on it when researching. Thanks

    Does Kenwood have an All-Band portable?

    Looking for something similar to the Motorola APX8000 portables that support VHF, UHF, and 700/800 MHz. I like how Kenwood portables such as the NX-5200 can support multiple protocols such as P25, DMR, NXDN, and Analog but what about multiple band splits?

    How to find which band an XTL 2500 operates in?

    I'm not too familiar with the XTL family, as I am with the XTS family, and I'm trying to discover which band this XTL operates in. Below is the only information I have regarding this without actually looking at the CPS. Is there a way to find out what model this can operate in? Thank you

    Antenna Strength

    This is probably an obvious to most that are experienced with scanning, but will a mobile/portable antenna that is designed for a specific band ALWAYS perform better in that band than one that is designed for multiple/all bands?

    Motorola frequency bands

    Hello, I have a Motorola EX500 handheld two way radio. (Flea market find) The spec sheet says this model does VHF and UHF frequency bands. Does that mean my particular radio can be programmed to do both bands or does it mean the model EX500 can be purchased for one band or the other? From...

    Low Band Radio Manufacturers

    Are there any manufacturers still making Low Band radios, (30-50MHz)? I heard if you're a low band user the only option is someone's used equipment.

    Searching the Database

    Is there a way to search the database on RadioReference database for users in the 30-33 and 47-50 MHz portion of low band in a specific state? I've looked at the search feature and don't see a way to drill down to a specific range of frequencies. Might be newbee issues.

    I have a few questions about monitoring the Air Band. These questions are kinda all over the place so I will just list them below. 1) Is their a glossary of AIR jargon so I can understand what some of these acronyms/ lingo mean ? 2) What frequencies should I scan to get the most enjoyment...

    Hi. I'm not sure if it's true but I heard long ago that Icom radios run cool when transmitting in middle of operating band as opposed to transmitting on edge. e.g., a 400-470 MHz radio transmitting on 435 will not get as warm as it would on 400.xx or 469.xx. Is that right?

    Scenario: Power is interrupted globally; People turn to radios to communicate:

    How do you communicate 5 Miles away, 50 Miles away, and 500 Miles away? Thanks. I have read a lot of posts and there are many thoughtful people.

    Frequency counter on bcd396xt?

    Was wondering how to use the frequency counter on the bcd396xt? I was able to find a review of the bcd396t where they mention when powering on press "hold" , "3" and "0". I did this and the display shows "800MHz+ Band" and it's flickering around 865 Mhz give or take. How do you adjust the...
