Quantro dual receiver question

Postby wd9cms » Thu Nov 25, 2010 9:07 am


I understand that the Quantro and Quantar repeaters can have a second receiver added. What I would like to try to do is add a second range 2 440-470 receiver to an existing range 1 403-433 Quantro repeater. What I would like is signals from either receiver to be repeated. The questions I have are the following:

1. Is this possible?
2. What are the problems associated with trying to do this if any?
3. Are there issues with receiver versions playing well together on the same backplane?

Thanks for the help!

There may be other posts on the same topic, but this should be a good starter.

This is an excellent question and one I have been pondering myself. I'll be interested to see the answer. Perhaps this post will help motivate someone into answering as there are now multiple people wanting to know.

I have the necessary hardware at my office to test this, I just don't have the time. If I find some time, Bill, I'll play with the configurations and see what I can come up with.
