I am looking for some suggestions for some great radios
I am looking around for some 5 channel walkie talkies, that cover
the 5 channels of 49.830, 49.845, 49.860, 49.875, 49.890, also
I want to still improve my 49 MHz reception. Also is there any
directional antennas for the 49 MHz region, for reception for
for communications receivers.
Also I got to tell you that the Pro 95 is great portable radio
for those walkie talkies, it has AM and NFM, and it has text ID
for Labeling 49 MHz Channel A, B,C,D, E Everyone have a great
holiday season. electronicdx.

I believe they're about the only company who still has 49 MHz radios
anymore. Radio Shack had a clearance on their 5-channel TRC-512
handhelds earlier this year. I had bought one a couple of years ago,
and I just got the last one in all of Arizona during the clearance.
Midland also used to carry some, but they don't have any listed on
their company website anymore.
Someone had a 49 MHz wire antenna which you could setup as a
standard dipole, or as a sloper. It was advertised as a cordless
phone monitoring antenna, which of course is illegal to do*, so that
may be why I can't find the ad anymore. I checked several issues of
MT and PopComm. MAXSystem?
*however, check out
Hmmm, here's an antenna. 49-51 MHz 3 element yagi.
Just for reference: http://www.atlasce.com/FCC_part15.htm "The
following Part 15 regulations contain all updates and changes made by
the Commission as of May 30, 2002. In addition, this version contains
some directional notes, not themselves contained in the regulations.
These directional notes are enclosed by brackets ()."
