dwmitchell61 Posted August 15, 2020 Report Share Posted August 15, 2020 I see that channels 15-22 are limited to 50W for MOBILE, HAND-HELD PORTABLE, REPEATER & BASE, while FIXED is limited to 15W. FIXED is two base stations dedicated to communicating with each other, perhaps using Yagi antennas? I also notice that channels 1-7 are limited to 5W ERP (effective radiated power), AND FIXED stations are not listed as authorized. That being said, it would be a violation to use any antenna greater than unity gain with a transmitter running at 5W? THEREFORE... One would have to set the transmitter at low power setting (1.5W) if using a 9dBi gain antenna, or would have to switch to a unity gain antenna if at 5W? The repeater channels RP15 through RP22 is limited to 50W for MOBILE, HAND-HELD PORTABLE, CONTROL (THRU REPEATER OR TEST) and FIXED is again limited to 15W. I am guessing FIXED to a REPEATER would have a dedicated and aimed Yagi? What is a CONTROL radio? Is that a remote control for the REPEATER? I DO understand the reasoning behind the madness, as it keeps one from "STOMPING" all over the other channel users. It seems rather easy for the uninitiated to get themselves in trouble rather quickly. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
