Well, when in receiver mode, will it not automatically find the transmitted frequency? My Marconi would instantly tell you the frequency you were transmitting into the t/r. Also is their a bypass for the calibration key ?

Re: What do you use for test equipment?

Good info. Picked mine up on eBay. Gave it about 30 min and it was spot on 10 MHz. When I'm off vac, I'll get into the user settings and see what's all available.

Re: What do you use for test equipment?

Good article. I'm amazed how little I can find on testing modern radios on you tube.

How many brand name radios have testing software? I've seen Motorola and Hytera. Any others?

Someone must be unloading a bunch of them. I bought two on eBay recently. Great condition and useful.

Re: 2 transmissions, simultaneously, on the same frequency, on the same repeater, if you use digital?

Also saves battery usage with digital since transmitter is only transmitting half the time vs analog.

Thank you Gregg. I have a copy of the manual. I still am having trouble with what is a common function in most service monitors.

IFR 1600, Aeroflex 1600 information

Does anyone use the Above mentioned service monitor? I just received one and have a few questions if anyone is available? I upgraded from a Macroni 2955 and can't figure a few functions out that I must be missing.

Thanks,

Re: Mag Mount, or Install? Which do you prefer?

Also, what's the best low profile 70cm antenna for the NMO mount. Shark fin? 3db gain would be nice as well.
