don't know if this helps.. my "on-going" test thus far:
1. having one radio turned onto frs channel 13 and let it run.. listening to some on-and-off security sentry guards chat. started since saturday(4/06) morning, running it non-stop (night time, left it on and tucked under a pillow).. today, it's just 2 bar(out of 3, power wise) left.. and still going. i occasionally triggered the ptt button and transmit
, without uttering anything over the mic.
update 1.. unit is still active.. as per pic below
update 2.. battery low indicator goes off at tuesday morning. perhaps 72-hours operational tim
e before shutdown
2. another radio left to continuously scan all channel(42 total) non stop, using mid power(~2watt). started on saturday afternoon.. today, same thing.. only 1 bar(power) dropped.
update 1.. battery indicator on low(belum shutdown lagi) after 48-hours continuous non-stop scanning
update 2.. unit shutdown before midnight on monday.. results? 48-hours continuous non-stop scanning
note - i'm using gp 1600mah rechargeable on these right now. i have yet to try them on my 2700mah.
that's all.. for the midland gxt900.
so, for wiraone.. why la ketuk others when you yourself have no idea? 1 hour konon..
err lwb no hard feelings but;
y dun u use a multimeter,
hook it to the antenna connector that is if the antenna is detachable thn scan
, see how much power is used on ur low, mid n high. take note of that
whn u scan, the VFO does not change in power taken from the supply(battery) when rx simply cuz, there's no point in doing tat! rx does not depend on ur 'power' but more on the rxing capability of the antenna
get a fresh set of batteries then nw repeate the antenna routine thn tis time instead of scanning, press the ptt and see hw much power is used on low, mid n high then take note of that.
find an empty channel thn tx on 5w presumably shud be ur high? thn dun let go for a while, i might be wrong but the first thing u'd notice is the change of temperature, n fluctuations in power shown in the multimeter thn u tell us how long did the bar last..
in case there's no access to a multimeter, then dun bother, just test the time, the answers will be clear to all of us
tis is a forum noneed to go all bombing other ppl, we're sharing wat we knw as hams n nonhams in the technical fields together we all learn ok
my 2 sens anyway but do tell us i'd like to knw hw it turns outThis post has been edited by someone_stupid: Jul 9 2009, 11:10 AM
