Re: MOF230 handheld scanning programming

Well, if it’s a defective radio then I have two of them that are defective in the same way.

I guess I’ll just throw them away. Thanks.

I just had another thought. If you’ve ever programmed one and got it to work, do you by chance have a codeplug saved on a hard drive somewhere that you could send me?

Dayton Hamvention P25 repeater

Just in case anyone is coming to the Dayton Hamvention for 2013, there is a P25 repeater on 443.600 that serves the Dayton area. It passes any NAC. Feel free to use it if you are so inclined. It is my personal repeater.

I am using NAC 532 if you wish to call me.

Enjoy.
