Don't waste your time with HF in Cheshire Hospital at least. You
might want to check with VT. They put ICOM 706's, I believe in the
hospitals over there and HF was to noisy, from what I remember, in
most of them.

Don't overlook the use of HF/VHF/UHF fully digital
transceivers such as the Icom IC7100, and the Yaesu
FT991A. I have both at my operating position.

Additional two cents...Here in Lucas County Ohio we
support 9 Hospitals with Icom ID880s. There is a port in
th back to connect a Signalink. It also has the
advantage of D-STAR.The D-STAR mode allows us to
communicate by voice without the local news and scanner
listeners hearing what might be critical information.

Hi George, I use a Kenwood TM-D710A/E. It works
very much like the Icom they are using now, in
that it has a dual band screen. You can monitor
two VHF, two UHF, or VHF/UHF frequencies together.
I have two of these radio's and I would not
hesitate buying another one. The TM-71A would also
be a very good choice. A little less expensive
than the 710.

used a Kenwood TM-V71A for years with great
results on packet and NBEMS modes as well as
analog voice. I can't remember whether I ever
used it in a hospital (high QRM) environment. I
remember the Icom that New London Hosp has
needed a good bandpass filter in the antenna
to keep out the pager and ambulance vhf comms. I
can not say how the Kenwood could compare.

Our New Hampshire ARES is looking to upgrade our
We are looking for recommendations for a VHF/UHF
dual band FM radio model that either has a data
port for connecting a soundcard, or a built-in
soundcard port, that would let us connect a PC
for FLdigi data TX/RX. George N1GB
