Are you meaning analog trunking signals? Then, no._Jerry_ said:I was in the market for a low-budget radio/scanner and the ft 7800 caught my eye. While it isn't a dicission maker, I was wondering if it recieved conventional analog signals. Thanks in advanced!
If you are buying a new radio, it will not be able to transmit on those frequencies. If you are buying a used radio, it might have been modified to be able to transmit in such places. If so, there are several ways of preventing unintended transmissions, the best being to undo the mod._Jerry_ said:Thanks for the answer. I do have another question though. Is there a way to disable tx'ing on frequencies I program to scan (ie public safety)?
ImTheWeasel said:Just a general question about this unit- Can it do an offset of "4.795" ??? I've looked all over for this info, but couldnt find it. I need it to be able to do that offset so it will work with our local EOC input freq.
SAR2401 said:Yes, it can do any offset you need. Of course, the radio will have to be modded to transmit outside the ham bands, which is not legal in the US, and your county communications officer may have a problem with a non-type approved radio being used under the county's license. But you knew all of that anyway, right?
