Quick question. Does the NSP run on repeaters or is it all simplex using two frequencies? ie. Base TX on one frequency and mobiles TX on another frequency, but not repeated through a repeater.
I'm actually sitting at the Sapp Bros. truck stop in York right now, trying to figure out why I can hear NSP on my crappy handheld, but not with a loband whip on my 2096, hopefully I can figure something out.NeFire242 said:It allows them to use their UHF portables with their low-band mobiles. The PAC RTs are low powered like 1/4 watt if that, but it's still a nice heads up freq to have.
Somehow the feeling is if you don't have your own 800MHz trunked P25 encrypted system you have nothing. They're low-band is paid for and works. Of course they'll say its obsolete, you have to sell more radios.
And Ben, with you're truck they'll probably just think the Feds are in town. I've seen your install pics and stuff. Very nice.
I can hear NSP when close to Madison on 42.280 M & 42.48 B what is the Mobile extendenter fequencey for Norfork-Troob 'B"NeFire242 said:Yeah they call stuff in... You're more than likely driving so fast the radio waves just haven't caught up to your antenna yet. Don't you have like a 706 or something mounted in your truck you can try to listen to them? What kind of scanner / antenna are you trying to listen to low band on?
If you listen to the towers you can hear them. They love to talk.
