Try comparing when receiving on the "center frequency" of a known repeater.
Yes, I don't know for sure if either radio was set to "narrow" or "wide". I since reset both readios, so I'm not sure how either was set. I'm assuming they were both set at their factory default settings, whatever that is likely to be.
Even thought the HT
is 1/4 the size of the mobile unit, I wouldn't expect the RX
spec would be that much inferior to the mobile on a solid signal. So I must have set something wrong. That is the premise I am
On the other hand, as you suggest, this may be a consequence of an inferior front end compared to the mobile when "off frequency." And why would the net folks adverstise an "off frequency" frequency?
The more I learn, the more I realize that I don't know a lot more than I thought I didn't know.
