Thanks. I'm watching those videos and I'll order a cable to program the radio.
What I was asking is, repeater channels. Once I find the channel with the correct receive freq; will it transmit at 5mHz higher automatically?
Sorry Dan, I don’t believe I understand your last question.
Here are a couple of videos on the KG-805G that might prove helpful. If you have not watched these already, do so and they may provide further insight.
Regarding Frequency, the KG-805G always and only displays the Rx frequency. Regardless of whether you are in repeater mode or not. When the radio is in repeater mode you will see a +- icon on the display. That is your way of knowing you are on a channel memory configured for repeater use.
One thing I can tell you about the KG-805G is that you cannot add frequencies into memory without software if that is what you are trying to do. You can only change between memory locations that have the frequencies already stored in them.
The KG-805G comes pre-programmed with 22 simplex frequencies in memories 1-22, and the 8 repeater frequency pairs programmed into memories 23-30. To use the radio with a repeater you need to do the following:
1) Learn the frequency of the repeater you want to connect to, then select that frequency on your radio (typically memory between 23-30).
2) Learn the CTCSS or DCS code required to connect to the repeater and enter it into the radio under the T-CTC or T-DCS menu option associate with that memory location.
3) Learn the CTCSS or DCS code required to open the squelch on your radio and enter that too into the R-CTC or R-DCS menu option for your memory location.
4) Make sure you are in good radio range of the working repeater, then press PTT and announce your call sign. If the Green light on the radio comes immediately after you release your PTT button that is a great indication you have connected to the repeater.
I hope this helps.
