My Small Friend

20151124_222923

When operating in my local AO I like to know what’s going on around me.  I try to carry a radio at all times but it’s not always possible. The Motorola minitor above rides on my belt and is programed with my local fire dispatch frequency. I am not currently a member of a local fire department but know one thinks twice when they see this compact radio on my side. These units can be found on ebay,  craigslist and ham fest for around  $20-$60 dollars.  One thing to remember is they must be programmed by a radio shop or someone with the radio interface box and software.  Also make sure the unit you get is in the frequency range of your monitoring target.
