    1 CSQ should be

    TX 806.0125
    RX 851.0625

    R Band

    TX 885.0125
    RX 830.0125

    You have to enter Test Mode after power up

    To enter test mode press the button above the PTT five times quickly after power up. You can test your radio on any frequency you like as long as that test involves the radio connected to a dummy load or a load incorporated in other test equipment.

    Obviously an antenna is not a dummy load and there are services licensed on the frequencies listed above. In your state for example quite a few county system use 806.0125 MHz.
    It is a fine thing to be honest, but it is also very important to be right

    Do not test a radio over the air, period. All tests and tuning should be done in a non-radiating manner. Once the unit is ready to be put into service, a short test transmission on it's final intended frequency is all that is required.

    If you're looking for a "simplex" channel to BS on in the 800 MHz band, forget it. There aren't any, and even worse than the FCC looking for you is the possibility of jamming the input of a local public safety system and causing someone to DIE. This is not stuff to screw around with casually, ever.

    Unlike ham radios or CB's, these were meant for commercial and public safety service and will transmit in those areas if not properly programmed and serviced. They are not toys or talkabout bubble-pack UHF CB radios.

    You aren't supposed to test a transceiver by transmitting with a radiating antenna. You are supposed to transmit into a dummy load, connected to a calibrated service monitor. Be careful transmitting on frequencies you aren't licensed to use, which brings me to my next point. If you are allocated frequencies, why aren't you testing with those frequencies.

    Ok so here it is we are a small township And we have more units with new equipment to be installed in to a Brand new squad cars And we are also upgrading our mobile Radios for the officers due to some of them are seeing the bench to much.. But here lied my problem we Only have Frequency's For Public safety to use only and when we upgrade Equipment for ex.The problem We face When Upgrading Equipment is we aren't aloud to use The frequency's To test the new equipment and the only way to find out if it all works Properly is to Give it to the officer to use You might say why Do you need to test It should work right well no. When we upgrade due to our low budget we only get "Slightly Used" equipment from the city's and county's and they tend to beat the Living **** out of the stuff they give us. So we end up sometimes with Broken Equipment. So that is why i asked if i could do it that way So i could fully test them all on a "out of range" Frequency to see if they would all work Correctly Together instead of making the admin mad because we Have to use The Frequency for a while.

    Might be time for those "officers" to just give up and go back to smoke signals. Remind me to stay out of Maryland.

    You should invest in a service monitor. It will allow your to test or service your fleets equipment off the air. They can be had quite cheep these days off ebay. Testing RF equipment over the air is not really proving they are in a servable state. Manufacturers recommend they be aligned yearly or when serviced.
