I bought this JT1000 at an Gov. auction and would like to find out if its a UHF or VHF. The numbers on the back are: MODEL# H01RDH9PA3AN TYPE- RDUA
I thought this was a good police radio that would recieve calls in my car but I dont have a clue how to use it. I already bought a real scaanner so I'll more than likely sell this. Thanks for any help

In many business settings you can use either VHF or UHF with success. VHF: Especially good for people who work somewhat line-of-sight or outdoors. VHF gets around rocks, dirt, hills and trees well and can also be used in many indoor situations. UHF: While VHF and UHF will both operate line-of-sight up to 2 miles, UHF (450mAH range) gets in and around metal better and even has a better metal punching capability. It also works well in and around concrete structures.
The model number for the UHF begins with AAH03R, and VHF begins with AAH03K.
Also, a quick indicator would be the antenna, if it starts out thick at the base and tapers to thinner than an ink pen, it is UHF. If the antenna is thick like a kindergartener's pencil, it is likely VHF. (Exceptions to this would be if you are using a 3" stubby antenna, and in that case they are all thick.)
You can use the model number to tell if you are VHF or UHF. You will still need to know the frequency(s) and PL code(s) your radios have to get radios to match.
VHF model number starts with P93.
UHF model number starts with P94.
The current replacement radio for the SP50 is the CP200. It is construction grade and was made to replace the SP50. There are other radios which will also match the SP50 including (but not limited to) the BPR40 and the new CP185.
