Communicate using a Motorola Radio?
To answer your question (that is, after all, why IÃ¢ÂÂm here): It depends entirely on which models
you are planning to use. For example, if you had two PMR446 variants that were both on the same
band, they ought to work fine (even if one was Kenwood and the other was Motorola).
If two radios are the same basic type and set to the same channel, then I donÃ¢ÂÂt personally see
why they wouldnÃ¢ÂÂt work. However, if they arenÃ¢ÂÂt of the same type, then they probably
wonÃ¢ÂÂt work, itÃ¢ÂÂs that simple.
Two-way radio technology is both simpler than youÃ¢ÂÂd think it would be and more complicated
than it first appears (if that makes sense), so its always best to make sure you have access to good
kit that is easy to use. Personally, (if it is at all possible for you) IÃ¢ÂÂd suggest spending out a bit
andgetting a new set, IÃ¢ÂÂll explain why below...
Your question does incur a dangerous element, so I feel IÃ¢ÂÂd better warn you. Make sure that
you understand, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that your license covers the frequency you are using.
For most of the frequencies youÃ¢ÂÂd likely to be using in order to connect the two devices, a
special license is required. Transmitting without a license is a serious crime and you could spend up
to two years in prison.
As Ã¢ÂÂRobert JÃ¢ÂÂ from Ã¢ÂÂYahoo! AnswersÃ¢ÂÂ, suggests, the reason itÃ¢ÂÂs
considered to be so serious an offence is because you can actually endanger lives by interrupting
radio transmissions from ambulances or police cars. I hate to sound like a square here, but in this
instance, the rules exist for a reason.
Anyway, you really need to do your homework on this one and it may actually turn out to be easier
and cheaper for you to just buy a new set of radios from either Kenwood or Motorola. If you were
running a business, IÃ¢ÂÂd go as far as to actually recommend you take this step.
However, if youÃ¢ÂÂre only using the radios for personal projects, then provided you check them
out and stick to the rules, you shouldnÃ¢ÂÂt have a problem.
