Re: Front end interference on the TM-D700E?

YES! Defintely. I live about 3 miles from a building that has numerous paging transmitters at 152 and 158 MHz at 200+ watts, and whenever I drive by that building, I constantly get paging interference. Mostly on VHF - I don't tend to listen to UHF as much, but can't say that I've had any major interference there when I am listening.
Another local ham recommended the Par paging notch filters - attenuating 152-153 MHz over 50dB. They also have one that does 158-159 MHz as well as 152-153. They live a lot closer to that building, and they haven't heard a peep of paging noise since they put the filter in.

Subject: [TMD700A] Front end interference on the TM-D700E?

Anybody had problems with their 700E or 700A when in close proximity
to paging systems ( 154Mhz )etc on VHF and also breakthrough on UHF?

A friend of mine bought a 700E at the weekend and it seems to be
somewhat susceptible to this. AIP is set to off, putting it on acts
as a 10dB attenuator or so it seems.

I have one but do not use mine in a RF interference area as a base
radio. So I have no complaint.
