90 series and 5710/5810 compatible for dual band?

Post by rwo978 » Sun Jan 06, 2008 7:50 am

Question...

Being the 5710/5810 P25 mobiles are built off the 90 series and are nearly identical, can you dual band an 890 and a 5710? I've got a dual band 730/830, but a lot of channels in the area are going narrowband and/or digital. No UHF freqs are digital thusfar, so I don't have a need for a 5810, only a 890. However, nearly all of the public safety's in the area are going p25, so I'd like to monitor for work/volunteer without having multiple radios possibly down the road.

Has anyone ever heard of this or tried this?

Sorry...but dual band does not appear as an option in the FPU for a 5810/5710. Go figure...they had a good thing going with the 90 series mobiles and they failed to apply it to their new stuff.
