Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

Hi Guys, I really need to buy a Patrol.... ;). I do monitor here from time to time. The PT4200 has long since been superceded by the PT3600 portable3 radio, which is a brilliant design.

Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

29MHz AM RADIOS: The virtues of 29MHz AM radios are many – they are relatively cheap and many Clubs and 4x4 drivers make use of them. They are priced at around R1100 – R1800 excluding antenna & installation. Their reliable operating range is anything from about three to five kilometres or thereabou...

Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

PORTABLE RADIOS (“HANDHELDS”): 29MHz hand-held portable radios are not being discussed here as they have shortcomings due to their low-frequency operation coupled to a cumbersome antenna.
