Saber II scan/transmit mode question

I am programming up a Saber II. The only thing I am stuck on is the H344 options for transmitting. During scan the radio is transmitting on the channel received (talk-back) and when it is not receiving it is transmitting on the selected channel. I have found the option for designated transmit channe...

Where can I find the PL tone on a GM300 board?

I am setting up a GM300 as a link radio and need to be able to control the PL tone on and off externally. I know the 16 pin port has a pin that can do this however you have to unkey and rekey for the pin to take affect. They way I had this working on a GE Phoenix SX was to have a transistor take the...

Waris vs. Jedi

I guess the biggest thing I have seen is the TX issue. I have several officers that will grab an old ht1000 or Standard HX400 and consistently out TX a waris radio with or without a speaker mic. We have proved it with vhf and uhf radios. We have swapped antennas, put them on a service monitor to mak...

MVA for EX/HT series

Does anybody know the differance between the UHF and VHF setups? I didn't see a power amp included with each setup so I am wondering what else would cause the difference for each band. Would be nice to have just one so I could swap my vhf and uhf radios.

If all of their channels are PL'd it may be worth opening up the squelch and just running the radio on PL only. It might be a bit scratchy if they are on the fringe, but the workers might percieve it as longer range.
