EP450 portable

Postby n9wys » Fri Sep 19, 2008 6:18 am

I was given one of these rigs. I realize it is not type accepted by the FCC for use in the US, but I plan on using it (if possible) in the 70cm Amateur Band, so type acceptance is not an issue for me.

I was told by another that this radio is "equivalent to the CP200 or so". Can anyone be specific? Also, if this is the case, can it be programmed with the CP200 CPS?

The guy who gave it to me got it from his company... they obtained them from one of their branch operations in Central American that was shut down. The original plan was to use them in the local plant, until they found out they were not type accepted. So they went into the dumpster. Not sure how many he has access to - he only gave me one (for now).

Thanks!

you may want to re-post this in the "General Motorola Radio Discussion" Since you want to work 70cm. you would get more exposure there than here in the Converting to 900Mhz forum.
