OK, I AM AMAZED WITH THE RESULTS AFTER I USED THE LMR400. I STILL GET SOME STATIC IN SOME AREAS BUT WHEN I GO FUTHER THE STATIC GOES AWAY, SO I AM NOT SURE WHAT IS CAUSING THAT. BUT I GAINED AT LEAST 5 MORE MILES THAN WHEN I WAS USING RG58.

I have the same problem with 4 of the tk 840, i thought i bought a 450-470 mhz radios but i bought 488-512 mhz band. my radio shop said he can do it but it would be more than the radio's worth and he would have to change major parts but no you can't just tune it, it won't accept it.
