i have alot of old vintage radios and cb radios that all work, this one looks like the maxon i will post a picture if it lets me, the label says advanced tech talk bc-360 but i cant find anything on the net about it but looks identical to the maxon. i have no clue the specs i do know its crystal type and has 2 crystals in it still, the guy who i got it from was a retired fire chief and was his when he was on the department so i am pretty sure it it has some reach to it if it was worked on . the picture is not of my radio but the ones that look identical to the one i have
wow those are in awesome shape to be so old i also have a few of the old channel crystal scanners bearcat electra and few others .Here are a few radios pushing 25+ years old. All work, however as you may imagine, some of them need batteries
Yes, there are radio's both amateur and commercial that will allow you to accomplish this. Off the top of my head, just about any ham/amateur radio will allow this permitting you have your ham license. As for commercial; The Motorola XTS5000 with FPP as a flash option, the Motorola JT1000 if it has the adapter, & I have a Kenwood 805D that can be field programmable by the front panel. I'm sure there are more. GMRS is a good for using commercial equipment, you will also need a GMRS license to be legal there. I hope this helps. Good Luck and welcome to the world of 2-Way Radio.wow those are in awesome shape to be so old i also have a few of the old channel crystal scanners bearcat electra and few others .
quick question, are there radios that you can type in the frequency to talk on or no? still kinda new to all this so was just wondering and if they do are they legal? thanks
Great starter radio, I have a Quansheng Dual Band. In the age of IRLP, the radio you mentioned may not perform DTMF. At least mine doesn't.
