Question about Two-Way Radios
I have two of these radios without the dummy batteries. I would like to use them without purchasing the NiCad batteries. The owner manual says I will need the dummy batteries when using regular AA batteries.
MY QUESTIONS ARE:
1. WHERE CAN I PURCHASE THESE DUMMY BATTERIES???
2. CAN ANYTHING ELSE BE USED INPLACE OF THE DUMMY BATTERY,
FOR EXAMPLE,,A DEAD AA BATTERY,,A ALUNIMUM OR COPPER ROD?? I CAN BE REACHHED AT LLOYDBAIRD@LYCOS.COM
Normal AA batteries are 1.5 Volts each. The battery compartment on the HH35 holds 10 Batteries. If regular batteries are used they must be configured to a 12 Volt output. Thus the Dummy (Blank) is used to Make 8 X 1.5V=12 Volts.
If you use NiMH or Nicd which are rated at 1.2 Volts 10 X 1.2 =12 Volts.

I don´t know what they mean with "dummy batteries" what shape has the radio in the battery compartment? does any AA battery match directly? How many AA batteries can be installed?
I think they use a Case when you are using AA batteries and the Rechargable battery is a pack that has diferent shape that any number of AA bateries.

A dummy battery is just a piece of metal that the battery power can travel through - just use any round metal (not alumnium) that is the same size as a AA battery - copper wound be best
