Hi Ron, Norm, Et.Al.
Good point. For the digi, I'll have to use one of my Yaseu HHs which I
can turn this feature off. (this feature has always annoyed me being
unable to be disabled on basically all UHF CB HHs)
For the TX HHs do the cheap ones need a longer TX Delay for their TX to
stabilise? Do they all send good data? How do HHs perform as their
battery dies? Am I better off using a 12V SLA through a regulator so
they have a constant voltage?

G'day Jim,
I'm playing with a quansheng HH at the moment. Its OK for transmit only
tracker, but no good if you want to receive and decode packets.

The rx has a sleep function which can't be disabled! It cuts the first
bit of received packets. One way around it is to have a looooong tx
delay on all tnc/trackers and transmit nulls. It will have to be about

BTW, I'd be more than happy to be proved wrong here re disabling the
sleep function
