  1. @Kalahari @Ralph Geonzon Welcome to Carnity Off Road Club ! As it's your first time with us, please share with us the following information: Please share your vehicle details below Prior off-road experience (Yes/No) Confirm front and rear tow hooks
  2. Thanks for replying @Michael sammy If your radio is a Motorola MT777 see below info to switch between channel mode and frequency mode: Note: This radio has 2 operating modes called "Frequency" and "Channel". To switch between these modes, keep the ENTER button pressed while switching on the radio. Pressing the VFO/MR button while you're in Frequency mode will bring you to the combined mode, which is basically a screen that shows both the channel and the frequency. You can use either one of these modes during operation.
  3. @Michael sammy with regards to your interference issue on Channel 02 (446.03125). I tried last night with my wifey's 2008 3.8 Pajero but did not notice any interference. We can have a look together on next drive, or send me some pics of your radio set to that frequency.
  4. Hi @RohanH glad to hear you enjoyed ! You will receive drive notifications via the Whatsapp group, but we communicate strictly only via the forum. Reason is that by using WhatsApp a lot of essential data gets lost and flooded. If you go through our website you’ll find hundreds of advices, topics, and discussion threads from Off-roading itself to the required tools, information on where to buy, etc...
  5. We have recently decided to use the PMR446 Frequency Range. PMR446 is commonly used and is consisting of 8 analogue channels located between 446.000 up until 446.1 Mhz. That gives us about 9 channels that we can use, BUT with most Chinese radios here being from Dragon Mart, i have seen that they have a bandwidth of 25Khz, meaning that you're constantly overlapping between CH1 and CH2. For this reason we have chosen to use: Channel 1: 446.00625 Channel 3: 446.03125 Channel 5: 446.05625 Channel 7: 446.08125 Putting the radio on NARROW setting to reduce bandwidth helps, but after testing 15+ radios of different models i have seen that even on narrow setting they seem to have this overlapping frequency (after all we are not using professional radios with super accurate frequency modulation). We are still testing these available frequencies and look for the safest solution, considering the fact that we are broadcasting now with +35 people on a sunny Friday morning, sometimes in the vicinity of Military Bases. (something you should know).
  6. Step 9 was indeed slightly revised lately: *WIDE setting basically means that your radio will broadcast and receive on a very wide band. For Example if Carnity frequency is 462.887 and your radio is set to WIDE, it will broadcast and receive anything between 462.6375 and 4631375 (25 Khz less or more) This is called channel spacing. *NARROW setting only has a channel spacing of 12,5 Khz so it reduces risk of overlapping frequencies and interference. That's why it is better to use Narrow setting.
  7. From going out and finding the right radio model, programming it, and using the functionalities to get it to work properly, this topic will be used to bundle all essential information and can serve as a discussion thread for everything radio-related. The first handy advice is found below: Above advice contains all the basic information to setup your radio. For whatever questions related to the topic radio / walkie talkie please use the "Walkie Talkie Essentials and Questions" thread to post your questions on which model, where to find, etc...
  8. Thanks for mentioning @Michael sammy So far we have experienced some interference issues with 446.05625Mhz (CH3) and decided to not use this frequency for now. Channel 2 however (446.03125) has been trouble-free so far, and have not faced interference issues in Pajero, but we will test further. Could you provide a screenshot of your radio set on this frequency ? Maybe some other option like CT codes or slight programming error is causing this.
  9. Dear Marjan, Richard, I was lucky to have you seen joining us, and since the start i understood that you both commit yourselves Seriously for anything you do. That commitment has brought you to this level and you both deserve that. If I can speak for all the seniors, we’re proud to have you both with us and look forward to many more adventures and drives !
