Astro Saber VHF - few qustoins about bandsplits

Post by MotoFAN »

Hi all!

Can anybody post here list of all available bandsplits for Astro Saber?

I saw list here http://www.batlabs.com/astrosab.html

1. VHF1 136-162
2. VHF2 146-174
3. VHF3 136-174
4. VHF4 136-174

But also I saw on eBay Astro Sabers for sale with 150-174 MHz bandsplit.

Questions:

1. Why 150-174 MHz bandsplit not listed at http://www.batlabs.com/astrosab.html ?
2. Why so many versions exist if version #3 (or #4) covers all VHF band (136-174 MHz range)? What for then narrower versions are necessary?
3. Which differences between versions #3 and #4?
4. How different versions can be intensified by RSS? I have checked many windows in Windows RSS and haven't seen any mention of a supported range of frequencies.
5. How different versions can be intensified without RSS and without radio disassembling?

Beforehand thanks!

There's no such thing as 150-174 in Astro Saber or Astro Spectra. They are 136-174MHz, 4th character in the model number is always K for a VHF model.

Just to clarify the above statement. Astro Saber VHF is 136-174 while the Astro Spectra VHF comes in 136-162 and 146-174.

You wish to tell, what Astro Saber exists only in one bandsplit version 136-174?

Any others bandsplits at Astro Saber are not present and never was?

ALL VHF Astro Sabers are 136-174. There is no other VHF split for the Astro Saber.

Now I'm getting confused about the astro saber band split. If all the VHF are 136-174, then why do I see so many different band splits listed in ebay ads?

You question has been answered multiple times.

You are asking why eBay listings show different bandsplits, simply due to uneducated sellers.
