Is there a dual band mobile antenna that can be tuned to work around 151MHZ and 460MHZ? Currently I am using a Baofeng UV-5R at the race tracks where I volunteer at for safety. They are using 151.625 for the track crew and also use the RACEceiver frequencies to talk to the Racers. Right now using the stock antenna I can set the UV-5R to talk to the track crew on the A-channel and monitor the Raceceivers on the B-channel. I would like to have one UV-5R mounted to my dash with an external antenna mounted to the roof of my truck since some of the bigger tracks I tend to lose some quality on my handheld. Is there a way to make this possible or am I stuck with the stock handheld only option? I am really new to all of this and want to make sure its done correctly. Thank you for any help.
I didn't want to highjack another thread with this question regarding the RT76P so I'll post it here - What type of radio does the Retevis RT76P seem to be based on? Is it a UHF only or some type of locked-down dual band? Since Retevis claims the radio supports NOAA, I'm led to believe it's some sort of dual band. I say it this way because my radios do not have the NOAA pre-programmed into any of the 30 channels. Maybe this aspect was too much of an expectation on my part (I'm new to this so what do I know) but it does not appear that I can tune the radio to any frequency either. So either it comes pre-tuned or you get to tune it yourself, that's the expectation when the feature is advertised.
