"Reverse Split" programming



It occured to me while programming my programmable radios that if you programmed a channel to both receive and transmit on a repeater's input you would be able to hear a nearby transmitter and determine if it was close enough for simplex or not and instantly respond on the repeater with the results.


I decided this was practical on most GMRS radios because we would already have the repeater output as a simplex channel and another memory channel for repeater use and a full spilt wasn't really needed. 


If you programmed them in succesively as 15, 15r, and 15s you could easly flip back and forth.

That is a good idea for those radios without that capability.


If I were doing that, I would configure the split channel as a Rx only channel so as to avoid its accidental use as a simplex channel which would/could interfere with repeater operations. I would also configure it without tone so nothing would be blocked.
