  1. I about to aquire a Kenwood TK 805DX. Does any one have any info on this
    radio and/or a link to a Manual.

    All my friend told me is that it is a 16 channel UHF (FM) Mobile radio. I
    only need 16 Channels for what I need it for but would like to know more
    about it.

    TIA MMB

    ** Two way UHF radio systems (other than the 40 ch 477 MHz CB band )
    require a government licence to operate - and they tell you what
    frequencies you can have. You sound clueless enough not to realise this.

  3. I am not going to get into a slinging match with you as you are clueless
    enough not to read my post. It is a UHF CB with 16 channels.....I have a
    Uniden UH -053 that only has 16 channels. It to is a UHF CB. It mearly have
    asked for a Manual so I can fit it to a car. and know the Caps and lims of
    the CTSS pad. I also want to program it for Selcall. and the specific UHF CB
    channel I use IE channel 15 channel 22,23.and channel 40, and you being so
    cluey will know why I want channel 22 and 23 then wont you.

    ** What was it I did not read ???

    Words you did not actually post ??



    ** Then why did you **wrongly** call it and I quote : " UHF (FM) Mobile
    radio " instead ??????

    That title indicates a commercial two way system.

  5. No you assumed I meant Commercial I stated neither. Most people would know I
    meant CB when asking about UHF unless I had said otherwise. I could well
    have said that I am using radios in the UHF band with a freq of 407Mhz and
    then you be correct in assuming that I was using commercial frequencies.
    Most people who have anything to do with radio work under the knowledge that
    if someone says UHF in a private capacity they are referring to UHF CB. Any
    where I have worked if someone comes in and asks for a UHF radio we usually
    set them up with a UHF CB, but then you in the city really do not understand
    vagaries of the bush do you. But as you a jack of all trades and a master of
    none you would know that. Plus you the world expert on everything electronic
    still haven't answered one part of my question where am I using 476.950 MHz
    and 476.975 MHz?

    No it doesn't.

    Since when was a (non base station) 70cm amateur radio or a UHF
    CB NOT a "UHF (FM) mobile"?

    Stop trying to pick fights with people Phil - either answer
    their questions or keep your mouth shut.

    Michael: ignore Phil - it's his time of the month. This page may
    be of some use:

  7. Thanks for that Mike. And you beat me. Iwas going to suggest Space based
    comms in the 1.2GHz range was still considered UHF.

    ** Don't top post - unless you want to show off how bad mannered you
    are.


    ** Rubbish - your words indicated a commercial two way.

    The Kenwood TK805D ***is*** a commercial UHF transceiver - *** not***
    a CB rig.

    someone says UHF in a private capacity they are referring to UHF CB.


    ** Your original post did not say you were are acting in a private
    apacity - go read it again and see how ambiguous it is.



    ** Must have been lots of invisible words in that first post - did you
    put them all in white ????



    ** Try "aus.radio.scanner" or "rec.radio.swap" for your question.

    ** Sure it does - and the Kenwwod TK805D *** is*** a commercial
    transceiver.

    An YOU know that too.


    ** Take your own advice - wanker.


    - either answer their questions or keep your mouth shut.


    ** No such rule on usenet - or anywhere else.

    All posts are fair game to be commented on.

  10. mmmmm. As I suspected.
     
  11. No such rule about top posting either

    But Phil was correct in a way - the Kenwood TK805 is NOT a "UHF CB radio",
    it is a 16 channel commercial 2-way radio that can be programmed for UHF CB
    frequencies as well as a variety of other frequencies.

    Perhaps the OP and others should research things a little better first -
    this radio can be programmed a number of ways depending on what the original
    owner wanted.....

    No, but just common sense and makes life far easier for others that are
    reading your post and may not be familiar with the entire subject.

    Also (as much as I hate saying this), before you abuse Phil for telling you
    that the radio is a commercial unit and the licence tells you what freq's
    are programmed into it, you should research and discover that this
    transceiver is NOT sold as a UHF CB. It is intented as a 16channel 25W UHF
    COMMERCIAL transceiver that can be programmed with the frequencies and
    options required. UHF CB channels are just some of the freq's this radio
    can be programmed with, and presumably the CTCSS options would also be
    programmable dependent on what the original owner wanted.....

    I presume as you want channels 22 & 23 you are using it for telemetry or
    telecommand - so why 25 Watts?????

    ** Was there some way in which I was not correct ??

    The Kenwood is not a UHF CB radio, since it is a 25 watt unit it cannot
    legally be used as one (only 5 watts max allowed on the CB band ) and the OP
    is clueless about all aspects of posting.

  15. You can drop the tx power on a TK 805. It has been being used as a UHF CB.

    I dont need to abuse Phil, I dont make a habit of abusing people. I find it
    pointless and very childish.

    btw there is no such thing as common sense.

    **** Like continuing to top post even though you are aware that the
    great majority of readers are against the practice!

    The 25W isn't an issue - it can be reduced to 5W and then you can legally
    operate it on UHF CB.

    But it still aint a UHF CB radio as the OP claimed it was.......
     
  18. There are licensed commercial frequencies in the UHF band. Why does
    "UHF" mean "CB"?
