    Default Multiband Radio grant

    Anyone had success getting funding for Multiband Radios. VHF UHF and 700 800 all in one?

    I have not heard of anyone even making a unit with all of those bands in one. VHF and UHF are no problem but 700 and 800 too?
    LV this is a question for you.

    Actually, there are a few companies out there now... My full time employer just purchased 125 (with another 125 to go soon...) Harris portables that will do the whole shebang from 136 to 869 (cellular blocked, of course)... A bit pricey but if you need that, it is out there!

    Years ago we used radios that were VHF, UHF, and Low band, but they were just Motorola SP units with three radios tied to one control head.

    Harris makes the XG-100 which ifyou buy it all decked out will do 136-174 (VHF), 380-520 (UHF), 762-870 (700/800) but not continuous like Medic 190 is talking about.

    My question - Really? Who really needs such a thing? MAYBE 5% of the public safety field?
