The radios have to be in the same band like UHF or VHF high band or VHF low band or 800mhz.
This can be determined by the model number on the rear of the radio.
If they are Motorola radios you can find that information on www.batlabs.com.
If you can give me the model numbers and they are another brand I may be able to help.

First, select the radio frequency band which would best suit your needs. (ie: VHF, UHF or 900 MHz) If you are talking in and around concrete and brick you would want to select the UHF or 900 MHz.

Second, with your frequency band chosen, narrow down the field of radios which have the features you like. (ie. number of channels, amount of wattage, text messaging, or plain jane, etc.)

Third, compare apples-to-apples. If you decide a 1 channel, 4 watt UHF radio would suit your needs, compare all brands with this criteria.

Fourth, look at the MIL SPECs of the radios you've selected. This will tell you much about their durability. (Some of the low cost radios will show up as lacking in this area.) The MIL SPECs are available for every radio on their product literature, and most likely on the internet.

Fifth, look at the size and weight of the unit. A radio might look great on paper, until you find out it is the size of a brick.

Sixth, look at repairability. Once your radio is out of warranty, is it repairable, and at what cost.

Seventh, look at battery, antenna and belt clip replacement costs. In two years you will need to be replacing those rechargeable batteries.

Hopefully, this will get you started. If you have questions, repost here, or talk to a radio dealer or two. IMHO most schools use UHF 4 watt models, or the newer 900 MHz (license-free) digital radios with success.

Hi,
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
goodluck!

### Does The Small Business Deduction Flow Right From School District Income Taxes?

No. The deduction won't change up the calculation of the taxpayer's school district tax liability. Rather, it will likely be added to taxed earnings for college district tax reasons. If you required the small business investor deduction on Plan A, line 41 of the 2014 Ohio form IT 1040 and also you live in a conventional tax base school district, you have to add some amount subtracted back online 18 of the 2014 Ohio SD 100.

### UDS10 reconnection problem

Try the LS100 from www.sena.com, it has a better warranty (5yrs vs 1yr) and its about half the price of a uds-10. We've had the same experience with the four UDS-10's we have and now 3 of the four have stopped working and report the following error: "FATAL ERROR 01/Setup memory: Contact tech support". I called there tech support and the guy (Marty) actully told me that the units have exceeded their life expectency. They all failed within the first ~22 months of operation. Working in a school district we cannot afford to keep doing the same thing over and over and over again, so our next project which involves 15 building will all use the SENA LS100 product and save the district money and have way better support and warranty. Thanks goes to "tech support" person Marty at Lantronix.
