I have been around repeaters for most of my adult life but all I had to do was push the talk button on the mike and listen to the speaker in my Sheriff's vehicle. Things have changed. I have a Midland MXT275 and have turned on my Repeater Mode for channel 17 to reach a certain repeater's frequency. The Repeater has a listed output of 462.600mhz with 141.3HZ and a listed input of 467.600mhz with 141.3HZ. I put these CTS codes of 141.3 into my lower channel 17 (frequency 462.600) and my upper Repeater frequency channel 17 (467.600). My Midland Radio CTS number for 141.3HZ is 22: not a problem. My radio indicates all are input. But here is my rookie question so I don't make a mess out in the field. Do I transmit and receive on the same Repeater channel 17 or do I have to scan back and forth between the input and output channel 17 of the repeater. I even think maybe I have to utilize the Monitor mode of the radio to transmit and receive the repeater on the same channel. I just can't find reference in my instructions. Appreciate some guidance. Thanks Ole' Timers!
I bought a repeater to use for GMRS. I want to program it with the right frequencies to match up to a "Midland 40 Watt GMRS MicroMobile Two-Way Radio" and other handheld radios. If I want to use GMRS channel 15 what frequencies would I use for Transmit and Receive on the repeater itself? Also what frequencies is the "Midland 40 watt GMRS Microbomile" using to transmit and receive for channel 15? They would be exact opposite right? Repeater = RX 462.5500 TX 467.5500 Midland 40 Watt MicroMobile or handheld radio = RX 467.5500 TX462.5500 Is this right or is it backwards?
