Low Split UHF Astro Spectra Out of Band?

Postby jersey_girl » Fri Dec 09, 2005 7:38 am

Okay, I purchased a low split UHF Astro Spectra (403-438, or whatever it is), that I'd like to use for the ham band.

The model page on batlabs says you can take Astro Spectras out of band... but I'm specifically asking about this radio... will it go up into the hamband okay?

Anyone have any experience with this?

There you go.
When exposed to Rapid Fire Growth or Thermal Emergency, two things are lost:
1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind
