Me thinks they call it the "Renegade" repeater. You can pick it up on the police scanner apps for phones. I could only take about 5 minutes worth, then I turned it off. The local CB channel wars of the late 80's and early 90's were more mature than those guys.

Impressive. Still collecting? I have a few from my station that I'd be willing to share.

Equipment / Filters For Dummies
« on: August 13, 2019, 2057 UTC »
I've been using a inexpensive import FM transmitter and an amp for a few years after my other transmitter.. well.. that is a bizarre story in itself, and best to be told at a different time and thread. Anyhow, back to the subject at hand. Recent circumstances have dictated that I seriously consider getting around to getting a filter for what I'm currently running.
My question is two-fold:
Part 1: After sitting in on the local two meter net, the topic of filters was brought up, and an Elmer was pontificating about the pros and cons (mostly pros) of cavity filters, and I am leaning that way. Is this a good way to go?
Part 2: If so, what do I need to know in purchasing said filter(s)
Part 3: Before the amp or after the amp (or both?) as far as application?
