Re: HT750/HT1250 Low band antenna - red color code??

Assuming a mid-range loss of 21dB relative to an isotropic, I think this suggests that 6W from a low band HT750 is effectively 30mW given the losses using the helical!!!....and an isotropic is 2.15dB greater than a dipole...so relative to a dipole its equivalent to around 20mW!! So 20mW using a low ...

You wonder why Motorola makes 4 different versions of the low band antenna when they probably all need to be cut!!!...although I guess its cheaper to buy a 42 - 50 MHz vs 30 - 36 MHz antenna as there is less "wire" and "rubber" :)

I guess the uncut version is ideal for 29.6 MHz!!

Rather than let the user decide to replace the battery, the Impres system just kills the battery even though its "80% good"?
