    Bear with me as I am not messing with you. But we used trees as antennas in the military Hybrid Electromagnetic Antenna Coupler (HEMAC), and some adventurous Hams have used them as well. If you're looking a great Receive (Rx) Antenna most hardwood trees work great. With a Antenna Tuner you can...

BUT... how do you set it up to where...

    MotoTRBO DP series: Radio Front LED Blinking Green

    Hi everybody, We are using MotoTRBO DP series radios with VHF frequencies, and the frontal LED is blinking from time to time with Green color even if there was no one PTTing.

I program it step by step for NAS like I've done on plenty of other systems and to no avail it doesn't work. The display shows the talkgroup but no audio comes through, the speaker isn't an issue as...

    GD-77 VFO scanning!

    How can I make the scan stop on the current channel in vfo mode? It always jumps to the beginning. Very annoying when you pass up a transmission and can't go back to the frequency. I can't find any documentation on "search" mode either. Carrier and time were self explanatory.

    APX 7000 Scanning Beep

    I have recently programmed my APX and when scanning I'm getting a beep when switching between channels. I have looked in the Scan Wide and Radio Profiles but didn't see anything that jumped out to me. Does anyone else know where I might find out where the setting is located?

    BCD996P2: Slow Priority Scan

    Just a quick question about Uniden Priority scan. I've owned a BCD996P2 for quite some time now and it's a beautiful scanner. It works perfectly except for one function, it's analog priority scan. It's remarkably slow, as in it pauses to check the priority channel for enough time to make any...

    UV-82 scanning

    Ok, I've programmed memory channels on a baofeng uv82 v2+ for a friend. The question is, can you "scan" the memory channels that are programmed? Not too familiar with this radio but it seems like a solid little handheld! Thanks for any help.
