Well anyway i made a mistake they are 31mhz split not 46mhz which i wanted (got caught up in moment and didnt read specs) Did anyone ever change a board out to get the higher split? I need it to receive only. Thanks Kevin

Denton is comming up this weekend and it would be nice to be better informed about these units when I get there.

Receive appears to be low side injection for all splits, Fosc = Fc - 10.7
Transmit crystal freq is doubled in the M split, tripled in the H and HH splits.
And the model number gives no clue as to the split, just the number of channels, squelch type, and whether or not it has an extender.

The Moxy looks pretty close to the Maxar circuit, including being single conversion. Definitely not a modified CB chassis.
