My VFD was recently moved from a conventional UHF system we owned to a p25 phase 2 TDMA UHF system that the county owns. This left us with a conventional system that we no longer use but maintain as a potential backup. The county gave us the radios for this system but not pagers and the batteries on the radios are not great. I would like to know if it is possible to take the receive audio from the p25 system and have it transmitted by one of our old tk8180 radios to our old repeater, and then have it set off our old pagers. The county is using two tone paging and the same tones we used on the conventional system. The p25 audio would be coming from either a sds200 scanner or a TK 5800 mobile. I know the tk8180 can be setup as a repeater with two TK81xx radios. Can this be done for one way with audio from a scanner or can the tk5800 and the Tk8180 be linked like the two tk 81xx could?
