Cross Banding Presentation
Cross band repeating is a feature with some VHF-UHF dual banders that simply repeats what it receives on one band and automatically retransmit it on the other band.
two htís to communicate on different bands.You will need a cross-band
radio. (another HT or mobile with cross band)You do not set the HTís you
are talking on in cross band.
Set one ht to a simplex vhf frequency and the other to a uhf simplex
frequency. Put both of the frequencies into the vhf-uhf dual banders and
set it to crossband.
Effectively extends the range of the htís on simplex.
DUPLEX CROSSBAND TO A REPEATER
an ht to have the range of your dual-bander. Set your ht to a suggested
SERA 440 cross band frequency. (example 440.775 for fixed station). Set
up your dual bander with a repeater frequency (example 145.15 -) and also
the 440 frequency that is in your ht (440.775).
Now set your dual bander to crossband and you have it. When you
key up your ht you will be transmitting on the 440 to the 145.15. You
will be receiving the 145.15 back to your ht on the 440 side.
You can also do this on a simplex frequency.
DUPLEX CROSSBAND TO A REPEATER
MUST HAVE AN HT CAPABLE OF DUAL RECEIVE AND BE ABLE TO HEAR THE REPEATER
CLEARLY ON YOUR Ht
your ht to a sugested
SERA cross band frequency(example 440.775 for a fixed station)
and the repeater frequency 145.15.
You need to set the dual-band mobile with the input frequency on
the 2 meter side and the 440 frequency on the 440 side(to receive the
440 signal from you HT)Set your dual bander
mobile with the input frequency of the repeater
( example 144.55 for the 145.15
) and the 440.775 frequency in your ht). Now set your dual bander
mobile to cross band and youíre in buisness. Your HT must silence the
sub band when you transmit so you will not hear an echo. (Alinco DJ V5
does this in split operation) When you transmit on your ht (440.775) you
go to the input of the repeater. Then to hear the repeater you are listening
on the repeater output with your ht. What this does is limits the amount
of time that your dual band mobile is transmitting.
It only transmits when you transmit or when your dual band mobile
receives a signal on the input side of the machine. I
know this is a little confusing but this gives you something to build
SUGGESTED CROSS BAND FREQUENCIES
up the Alinco 610 to cross band.
Put your respective frequencies into the dual bander. To enable
crossband while holding function button press the vhf.
To disable while holding the funtion buttom press uhf.
up the Kenwood TM-V7
Put in your respective frequencies into the dual bander. To enable
crossband Press Cont Select button(located between the two volume controls)the
display above the VHF band will show ctrl. Turn the radio off. Press and
hold the left voume control while you turn the radio on. Now above the
uhf band the ptt will be blinking. To disable press and hold the left
