Re: Favorite VHF Wideband antenna?

Panorama's tri-band whip. With the NMO adapter, list price is about $75. The antenna is spec'd for 146-174/430-480/764-896 MHz. Other than that, I like the Motorola/AS heavy duty 1/4 wave whip with spring (non-/\/\ PN: MWV1365S). Of course, Motorola runs the AS base on their version usually. Thanks...

Re: Monitoring system input channels

Sorry not at a trouble shooting level. More of a fun exercise/get my attention of who is nearby. It's been interesting listening to the inputs from the scanner how some users are crazy hot but the system does a pretty good job knocking them back down. I'm hesitant to mention any "out of band" stuff ...

Monitoring system input channels

Has anyone come up with a good solution to monitoring the input frequencies in the field in the 806 range? The scanner works ok for this but I was hoping for a more robust solution.

Re: XTS 3000 RSM No audio

Well I'm embarrassed... The radio contacts looked shiny and clean (in fact cleaner than most of my 5ks) before and after i used an eraser on them, and it didn't help. However I have a steel pick in my drawer that comes in handy and decided to give them a light scraping and it's working now. I really...

XTS 3000 RSM No audio

Hey guys I'm a little confused on this one. I have two XTS 3000s which have been used successfully with speaker mics in the past without issue. However this last weekend I go to run the RSM off them and neither work. I've been setting them up for an XTVA so both had the RF adapter on them so I thoug...

Re: Site trunking questions

Failure was the wrong word sorry. If a tower does go into site trunking, do the subs try and look for an acceptable site that is not site trunking? I thought perhaps some of our radios may have been programmed to do that and found the adjacent site while the others were not and stayed on the strong ...

Site trunking questions

Experienced my first system failure this weekend while on duty and I had a couple questions. I realize it's hard to know what happened for sure without having access to the system but any thoughts would be appreciated. We were working a motorcycle ride so subs were moving across our county. We are o...

Re: Xts 5000 repeated talkgroup "joining"

Excellent, thanks Notarola. I thought I remember on the old forum advising modification of the RSSI settings wasn't advisable unless you have the detailed system info, so I wasn't about to touch the duty radio. They are stock at the moment and I haven't noticed any issues or missed calls, so all is ...

Xts 5000 repeated talkgroup "joining"

Hey guys, I'm a user on our statewide 9600 P25 system, and have been tracking our units radios on Unitrunker from home. I noticed two of our newly programmed/aligned 5k's (one of which I use) had repeated "joins" in a row in its history on a main dispatch channel within a few minutes. During that ti...
