I own a ba pub we have live bands on the weekends we need to stay in contact with the bouncers and bar staff whats the best product for the job im looking into wireless head sets Ray The Pump House

Hello there,

We have plentty of Motorola radios HT 1250 vhf portable, we are using these radios in talkaround, and would like to introduce a repeater to swicth to duplex mode. The repeater that we have available for this operaction is a Kenwood vhf fm tkr 750, the frequency range is the same as portable radios. However, I´m wandering with we could possibly face a compatibility combining the two models.

Are the new Motorola Talkabouts like the MR350R compatible with the older FR50's?
I have FR50's.

Thanks;
