What are Highway Patrol Alerts?

Most highway patrol vehicles on the road today are equipped with a secondary radio system
known as a “mobile extender” or “vehicular repeater.” Whenever the dispatcher transmits to
any vehicle in the district, “mobile extender” in every car within the district is activated.
Using a constant PRIORITY check of specific frequencies in each state, the BCT8
recognizes and alerts you to transmissions from “mobile extender” radios as well as from
car-to-car, aircraft-to-car and other special-purpose frequencies. You receive an audible
(beep tone) and visual (flashing Alert light) alert whenever you are within an approximate
three-mile radius of Highway Patrol/ State Police units using a mobile extender unit.               

What is Scanning?

Unlike standard AM or FM radio stations, most two-way communications do not transmit
continuously. The BCT8 scans the Frequencies you have programmed into the Scanner’s
channels until it finds an active frequency.
Scanning stops on an active frequency and remains on that channel as long as the
transmission continues. When the transmission ends, the scanning cycle resumes until
another transmission is received.

What is Searching?

The BCT8 can search each of its 13 bands to find active frequencies. This is different from
scanning because you are searching for frequencies that have not been programmed into
your Scanner’s channels. The scanner automatically chooses between two speeds while
searching. During search mode the scanner will search 100 frequencies per second for band
with 12.5 kHz steps and during Turbo SEARCH mode the scanner can achieve up to 300
frequencies per second for bands with 5 kHz steps
.

What is Trunk Tracking?

Conventional scanning is a simple concept. You enter a radio frequency in your scanner’s
memory which is used by someone you want to monitor. For example, the police in your
area may broadcast on 460.500 MHz, the fire department on 154.445 MHz, the highway
department on 37.900 MHz, etc. So when your scanner stops on a frequency, you usually
know who it is, and more importantly, you can stop on a channel and listen to an entire
conversation. This type of scanning is easy and fun.
As the demand for public communications has increased, many public radio users don’t
have enough frequencies to meet their needs, and this has created a serious problem.
Trunking radio systems have been implemented to solve this problem.
5 In a trunked radio system the frequencies are shared among the police and fire departments
and a computer systematically assigns available frequencies when they are needed for
communications.
Sharing of the available public service frequencies, or trunking, allows cities, counties, or
other agencies to accommodate hundreds of users with relatively few frequencies. Following
a conversation on a trunked system using a scanner is difficult, if not impossible. Because
when there’s a short break during the conversation you’re monitoring, it’s possible that the
talkgroup will be assigned to a completely different frequency in the trunked system. This
type of scanning is difficult and frustrating.
TrunkTracker Technology changes this! Not only does your new BCT8 scan channels like
a conventional scanner, it actually follows the users of a trunked radio system. Once you
know a talkgroups ID, you won’t miss any of the action.
If you’re a new scanner enthusiast, you may want to read the first part of this manual and
use your scanner in conventional mode before you begin trunk tracking. Understanding
scanning fundamentals and its terminology will make trunk tracking much easier.

http://www.jokermanelectronics.com/Stryker_SR_447HPC_10_Meter_Amateur_Radio_p/24.htm

Impressed? Want to buy?

NOTICE

10-Meter Radios are intended for use by amateur radio operators only.

A license from the FCC is required.

Looking for a high power radio that’s loaded with features? Introducing the Stryker SR-447HPC 10 Meter Amateur Radio.

The new Stryker SR-447HPC takes all of the good from the SR-440HP and adds even more! We listened to your requests and built the SR-447HPC with the operator in mind. We’ve loaded the radio with real world, common sense features that make using the radio a blast. Highlighted below are some of the more important features that the SR-447HPC offers.

Important Features Include:

7-Color Channel Display – The SR-447HPC features a 7-Color channel display (Stryker Exclusive)

Brilliant 7-Color LED Backlit Face Plate– Choose from 7 colors with the push of a button or let the CPU controller scan through all of the colors on it’s own. Our exclusive face plate design provides operators with back lighted controls, making adjustments even in the darkest conditions easy. Best of all our design is extremely durable and can be dimmed using the color/dimmer button located on the front panel of the radio.

Multiple Step Dimmer – Our improved dimmer allows you to fine tune how bright you want the backlighting and channel diplay. Simply press and hold the “color” button in until the radio dims to the desired level. You are no longer limited high, medium or low.

High Power Mosfet Finals– The SR-440HP uses high power mosfet transistors that provides the user with 55 + watts PEP. If you want be heard, the SR-447HPC has the power required to do some serious talking.

Heavy Duty AM Regulator – We’ve upgraded the AM Regulator for increased reliability.

Digital Echo with/ Dual Front Mounted Controls – Provides the operator a much wider range of effects and control than typical factory or aftermarket echo boards. Our board is able to reproduce the human voice with virtually no distortion providing maximum clarity and enjoyment.

Two Different Roger Beeps – Two different roger beeps are included with the SR-447HPC. These are controlled using a switched that is located on the front panel. This is a feature that you will find on virtually no other radio direct from the factory. Most importantly the roger beep can be turned off when it’s not needed.

Variable Power Control – Allows the operator to adjust or vary their carrier from one watt to over 55 watts PEP. This is a must have feature if the operator intends to use an external power device.

Variable Talk Back Control – The infamous talk back squeal is virtually eliminated with our independently controlled talk back circuitry. The operator can adjust the volume to the perfect level as operating conditions require. Best of all the user no longer has to turn down the microphone gain to stop the annoying squeal that is often the result of poor design or cost cutting at the production level.

Up-Armored™ Receiver– Our exclusive receiver protection works even under the harshest conditions, such as those experienced at a busy truck stop with many operators running high power radios. In addition our receiver filtering is tighter than most radios on the market. This means adjacent channel rejection is improved.

Additional Features Include:

  • 7-color meter light and channel display
  • Large round meter that is easy to read
  • Advanced NB/ANL Circuit Reduces Interference
  • AM/FM Operation and PA Circuitry
  • Automatic AWI (Antenna Warning Indicator) alerts the operator if their SWR’s are too high
  • Multiple step dimmer button on front panel
  • Front microphone connector for easy mounting in tight spaces
  • Receive and Microphone gain controls
  • Frequency Counter Jack pre-wired for FC-390 style counters
  • 1 Year Limited Factory Warranty

RANGER RCI-69FFC4

NEW RCI-69FFC4 FROM RANGER

RCI-69FFC4

Installing the Radio
Choose a convenient location for operation that does not interfere with driver or passenger. this radio is supplied with a universal mounting bracket. when mounting the bracket and radio to your car, make sure it is mechanically strong. Also, provide a good electrical grounding connection to the chassis of the vehicle. Proceed as Follow to install the radio.

1. Locate a convenient area in your vehicle for the installation of the radio. Hold the mounting bracket with the radio in the location where the radio is to be installed. make sure nothing will interfere with either the radio or the mounting bolts. Mark and them drill holes for the mounting braket.
2. Most radio antennas come equiped with pl-259 plug. Connect this plug to the antenna jack in the hear of the radio.
3. Extending from the rear of the radio is a fused red and black wire for the DC connections to the vehicle electrical system. For best performance , it is strongly recommended that the red lead be taken directly to the positive terminal on the vehicle’s battery and the black lead to be connected to the nearest chassis ground. (PS: This radio is designed for vehicles with negative ground systems)
Connections should be made using appropriate “crimp on” lugs of a size large enough to make good contact with the bolt used to fasten to the battery and the chassis ground, It is good safety idea to install a second fuse, in series with the red wire at the battery connection. This second fuse would provide protection in case the red wire was to “fray” or get pinched and short to the body of the vehicle, somewhere between the battery and the radio.
High power radios such this one require large DC current flow when in the mode. Poor power connections can cause supply voltage drops that can substantially decrease the performance of your radio. A good DC connection is probably one of the most important things for getting the best transmitter performance and in some case, least receiver noise.
4. Mount the microphone bracket near the radio in an easily accessible spot using the two screw provided.

Ignition Noise Interference
With weak signals, you may experience interference of the signal by background noise. This radio has NB and ANL controls which will help reduce background noise from sources such as your ignition system. However,background electrical noise may come from several sources and all noise may not be eliminated. With extremely weak signals, you can operate this radio with the engine turned off, which should improve reception. If the ignition noise level is too high to allow proper operation under most conditions you should have your installation of the radio checked by a qualified technician.

Antenna
This radio has a jack in the rear for a standard PL-259 antenna plug. If you are looking for the most range for your transmission, use a vertically polarized, quarter-wave length antenna. If antenna height is a problem, you may use a shorter, loaded type whip antenna although you can expect some lost of transmission range.
To improve performance, your antenna should be matched to your radio. Your antenna can be adjusted so that it matches your radio.

External Speaker
The external speaker jack (EXT. SPK) on the rear panel is used for remote receiver monitoring. The external speaker should have 8hms impedance and be able to handle at least 4 watts. When the external speaker is plugged in, the internal speaker is disconnected.

Public Address

To use the Public Address (PA) function, first connect an external speaker to the PA. SP. Jack on the hear of the radio. see the above specifications for a proper external speaker. keep the speaker away from the microphone to avoid acoustic feedback.
