    Howdy all,

    I want to move a base station of a mobile radio system to a remote
    location where I hope to get better coverage, but I want to keep the
    mic and channel control in the present location. I have access to
    either an RS-232 or a DS0 line, whichever I wish to use, and the line
    length is less than 10 miles. The frequencies are currently allocated
    and on the air, so there are no problems with the bureaucracy. I have
    been researching VHF modems, but am unclear about design applications.
    Our present transmitter is operating at 50W. I was hoping for a
    little insight about how to go about setting up this system, and
    possibly some recommendations about what equipment offers the best
    option for implementing this type of a setup. I need to implement a
    selectable two-channel system. Thanks for your time and suggestions.

    It is easy to do with a tone controlled remote system. Call CPI
    communications at 800-869-9128. They have all the equipment needed.
    You just need a dedicated phone line that will pass audio. If you can
    get a dedicated line that will also pass D it can be done with DC
    control rather than tone and the equipment is a little cheaper. But
    most phone companies will not provide DC circuits anymore.
    Cost of the tone remote equipment will run around $700.00.

    You must also apply for modification of your license for the new
    location of the transmitter.
