Vertex VXR-1000 mobile repeater

(1/2) > >>

Steve Harrison:

Anybody have any experience with putting the Vertex VXR-1000 mobile cross-band repeater on VHF Ham frequencies?

Tks, Steve, kb7rgt

Jack Stout:
I am not sure what you want to do.  If you have a vhf version it will couple a vhf signal to a uhf radio and retransmit via the radio on uhf. I have never tried programming one to vhf amateur frequencies but generally speaking, most Vertex products will cover the amateur bands.  could you be a little more specific on your application?


Steve Harrison:
Hi Jack,

Thanks for your response. Yes, what I want it to do is transmit in the 2 meter band. I talked to a Vertex Tech who said his software would not allow him to input a Ham frequency, and further that he 'thought' there were hardware blocks to it as well.

The bottom line is, I just bought a new one, and need to know if I can use it, or if I need to eBay it.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Steve, kb7rgt

Jack Stout:
I can not tell you 100% that it will program into the ham bands.  I have only installed two of these units over the past year and both were commercial applications.  I do know that the VXR has to be hardwired into the radio via rx audio, ptt, power and so forth.  

Good Luck

You bought this thing BEFORE you decided to find out if you could use it? Come visit me, I have several items I'll make you a very good deal on.
