This is a great repeater for thkse that have it or can fi d a used one for sale. If motorola kept making it it would sell great. Unlike the other seller who has no Radio experience thks is the bed you get for a duplexed repeater of thks size. And contrary to whats stated any uhf radio will program to this offset easily. It was meant to be small. Expecting a 5 mhz offset is physically impossible on a duplexer this small. Day one stuff. Even getting a duplexer and radio this small fit into one unit is a technological achievement. The 2 watts is more than good enough with a decent antenna hooked in because again the duplexer. Wanting a 5mhz offset only or 5 watts only would require a big rackmount unit which this site already sells go look there. Anyways this is fantastic. I used it in japan on motorola cp200 business radios around my apartment complex with the wall mount hold it as on the ceiling by the window about 250 feet up. The coverage was amazing in the hilly terrain and provided great solid handheld coverage in the hilly 4 mile radius i used it in.
This is a very simple analog repeater. Even though it is only 2 watts output, it can greatly enhance in-building radio coverage by locating it in a high location. I just recently discovered this repeater, and I think it's a shame the it has been discontinued. I use this repeater as a travel repeater, when I go on road trips. Small to carry, and simple to setup. Runs on 12v DC so it can be powered by a car battery.
Are They Kidding! I looked into this thing, and I said to myself, They Have to be Kidding. A mere 2 watt output, about the same power as your average HT. The frequency offset is so far apart that it will only work on Motorola Ht's designed with this similar offset. Yeah, you can have your existing HT's reprogrammed POSSIBABLY,but I doubt it. Most UHF repeater offsets are 5mhz. This thing is more like 20 mhz. For that kind of money, you'd be better off linking 2 mobile rigs together.
