    Okay, I'm confused on how this works. I just made a contact on so 50... I thought the duplex mode was active, I could still hear the squelch in my headphones when I keyed up... But I didn't hear myself talking on the rx side... Someone did respond to me so I know I got through. How can I...

    Antenna on a Fiberglass Airboat - Grounding Question

    I'm a member of my local fire department, where we have this airboat equipped with a dual band radio. It may be hard to see in this picture, but the antenna is mounted toward the front, right in front of the cab. Transmit quality is not great on it. Since it's a fiberglass boat and that...

    XTL/XTS5000 O3 head but no Radio ID Alias

    Hi all - we just took in a Motorola XTL5000 from our local PD that still has a lot of life in it. We have all apparatus and personnel outfitted with APX radios and therefore, each radio has an alias associated with it (D.C. 1, Command 804, etc.) These alias’ aren’t transmitted anywhere, just...

    430-470Mhz antenna on 403-470 ht 750?

    I'm not radio savy so this might be a dumb question. Can I use a 430-470Mhz UHF antenna on my UHF ht 750 that's 403-470MHz without harming it? Or should I just buy a 403-470MHz antenna?

    Cos sanders used for mono and repeater???

    So I’m sitting around at work. It’s a slow day. I’m just bouncing around on YouTube, radio reference forums, google, etc... and a wild hair sparked a theory. Therefore I have to ask the experts!
