    Is there more to this article? How did the two radios pin out to connect to the RC-210? I am thinking this might make a good short-term back up set in the event either my VHF or UHF machines fail.

      There is more coming however the project was postponed due to more pressing issues. Once I pickup the antennas and mast where I can start testing I’ll have a lot more info coming.

      The radios connect to one port on the RC-210, so it’s essentially a “Y” cable with two DB9 connections for each radio and then one to the controller. You could use one radio per port however that isn’t needed and would just use up a port that could be used for another repeater, linking radio, etc.

  2. Did you ever finish this? We are looking at doing the same thing here in New Orleans.

    Hi Brad, Hope you are doing well. Did you test post connecting the DB9 on the radio with ARCOM RC210? That the radios were acting as repeater on single port i.e. Did it work as RX from one radio to TX to another and COS/COR etc. working all ok?
