Advice On Setup?


So Its Been Many Many Years Since I Last Operated A Radio Of Any kind So I Am Looking For Advice On This Setup I Am Thinking Of Getting Me Started Once Again.

Radio 11m : [sign in to see URL]
Antenna : [sign in to see URL]
Burner : [sign in to see URL]
PSU : [sign in to see URL]

Miscellaneous Items :

12" T&K : [sign in to see URL]
RawlBolts x5 : [sign in to see URL]
RG8 : [sign in to see URL]
Mast Alu : [sign in to see URL]
Patch Leads: [sign in to see URL]
4 X PL259 : [sign in to see URL]
Scanner Antenna : [sign in to see URL] ( Obviously For My Scanner emoticon
PL259 To BNC : [sign in to see URL]

Well Now...

My Main Concern Is The Radio, Will This Be A Goog Enough Radio Does Anybody Know Anything About This Radio ? (ie: known issues reliability )

My Second Concern Is The Antenna, This Will Be Up At The Gable End Of The House On A 10ft or 20ft Aluminium Pole Will This Antenna Be Good Enough For The Radio I Plan on Buying ?

I Am On A Budget For This First Setup So If You Think i Should Change The Antenna Or The Radio Can You Provide Some Suggestions.

Thank You Inadvance. emoticon

I'm unsure of that radio mate as ive no experience with them. President lincoln 2 seems to be the legal radio at the moment but it's £60 more. Most people favour the antron 99 or sirio gain master antenna for good performance.
The power supply seems a bit over kill at 30a. Rg213 coax it the better stuff. Brackets and poles seem ok. Try you local tv arial installer he might be able to supply to save you the postage.
Hope this helps

No worries fella, hope you get sorted soon.
By the way if you look in the transceiver reviews section, there's a review of that radio you've listed.

Hi
I have spoke to a few operators using these radios and i have to say they do sound nice .
The burner i use one of these and have had good results with it.
the psu looks good it will run a bigger amp if you change in the future.

good luck Ewen

Re: Advice On Setup?


The anytone5555 / maas dx5000 / k-po dx5000 / intek hr5500 / superstar 6900 / etc etc are all the same radio just a different name.
They are very good for the money, and have a lot of useful features like frequency readout, split frequency operation, ability to have the clarifier set to rx, tx, or rx & tx adjustment, lots of good things about these radio's.
The tx audio is great, and the power output is adjustable so will be fine for a small amp.
You can program the bands to exactly the frequencies you want with software, a cable, and a pc.
Bad points : They are not the best build quality but they are cheap so ....
Sometimes, they can be slightly off frequency from new, but you can adjust them without even taking the case apart (it's done in a 'secret' alignment menu).

Overall you can't go wrong with one of those.
