VHF high power ASTRO SPECTRA interfacing

Postby N9KTW » Mon Apr 17, 2017 10:13 am

HI all

New guy here, so my apologies if this was asked before.

I have a high power VHF ASTRO SPECTRA in the ham bands. It has a hand held controller. It is working just fine.

My questions are these:
1) I am TRYING to easily interface a Vertex VXR1000U (uhf) to this radio using J6 without a lot of mods to the radio, can this be done? I have a J6 pinout, and cannot seem to find a COR on it. What am I missing?
2) IF I were to decide I preferred a different head other than the hand held, do I need anything more than a) the head, b) the CORRECT cable from head to radio, c) reprogram the radio for the head?

Again, being new, I may have missed the answers to these questions.

Thank you.

Howard, N9KTW
