On this model #75-509 what is maximum distance for comunicating

I think that is a 1 watt radio. In optimal conditons you should be able to get a 3/4 mile solid, maybe a bit more. In a not so great situation, such as woods or buildings in the way about 1/2 mile or a little less.

Is there anyway to change the frquency of these uniden 2 way radios


Simple answer is no.

These radios were made for the USA where GMRS/FRS is available.
They work on a frequency range of 462-464MHz which in Australia and New Zealand, it is illegal to operate such radios without the apropriate license.

They are UHF commercial band two-way radios, not CB radios.

Note: Be warned that if you operate these radios in ANZ, and you're caught doing so, you will be charged under the radiocommunications violation act, and will be heavily fined and/or imprisoned.

My best advice is to buy a proper 5 watt UHF CB radio/handheld for next to nothing on ebay, and be able to use them legally in ANZ without the need for a license.

W do I turn off squelch control on a digitech DC-1065 marine radio hand held 5 Watt

Hi David,

Before I try to give advice, I need more info.

I possess a Digitech DC1065 UHF 80 Channel CB hand held, so there seems to be some confusion here.

I live near Perth, Western Australia.

Firstly, How many channels does your radio have?

If the answer is 80, then what you have is a UHF CB, not a marine band radio.

Marine band is VHF with 87 Channels, in Australia that is, and the default channel is always 16.

Digitech are an Australian radio manufacturer, so you'll get great backup service.

If your radio is not defaulting to Ch16, then I am right about it being a UHF CB.

Therefore, it is useless for VHF anything, let alone Marine band.

I'm almost 100% sure this is a UHF CB in your possession.

Try this to prove me right please.

Reply to me with your Country and nearest city, I'll then be able to find a solution for you real quick, though I believe I already have.

Looking forward to your response.

How to put the police channel on my uniden VH038SX-2NB

Hi Shorty,

Uniden UH038sx-2nb, is the make/model.

Unfortunately, what you have is a designated UHF CB radio, that can't be programmed with frequencies outside of the UHF CB band.
Well, not without stuffing the unit up, anyway.

Why would you want to program police frequencies into a 2-way radio anyway, The fact that police are moving or have moved to digital, means you won't hear anything anyway., so why bother?

That's what radio scanners were used for, until the cops found out, and started changing to Digital mode operations.

I really can't see the point of modifying and most likely destroying an otherwise perfectly working radio.

Sorry, I couldn't be more helpful, but that's life.
