  1. So I had this interesting idea while looking at some "Tactical" repeaters owned by the Texas Department of Transportation. Basically they are VHF boxes with Li-on battery packs about the size of your average Pelican handgun case, a 5W full duplex board and a notchplexer. Then I started running some power draw numbers with the Maxon data radios…then the Ritron data radios, and then Tecnet released a new line of smaller data radios along side their Maxon line at IWCE this year. Then 11 Motorola RNet 450's plopped in my lap from a SK's estate. Crystal controlled, single channel data radios that'll run 4W out (on what is probably a 10% duty cycle) with some other junk in the case that isn't actually needed for "repeater" duty. So I've though about throwing a repeater (or two) together in an ammo can, adding a small duplexer (the 20W rated Jensen duplexer will fit nicely in a 30 cal can), adding some external heat sinking and a battery and seeing how it runs. Just gotta track down the service manual for the radios if I'm going to use the RNet radios… Any thoughts?
