The ICOM IC-2720H supports cross-band repeat
this feature may be activated by simple key strokes as follows:
To invoke this Cross Band Repeat:
|To exit this function:|
|IMPORTANT NOTES !!|
Make sure you
press LOW and DUP at the same time.
This can be difficult -- if you don't, you will get the 'busy' light blinking -
you have put one channel into 'monitor' mode and it won't repeat despite the blinking 'L's
Just clear it (press SET) and try again.
Here is a nice illustration provided by Norm K7NCR
I have had several emails
concerning cross-band repeat.
SOME U.S. models cannot perform the cross-band repeat,
and many, if not all, European models cannot.
According to Icom:
"Thank you for contacting ICom Technical Support.
Crossband repeat requires the removal of D2045. If the Diode is still
in your unit then we will be more than happy to remove it"
This Diode is located next
to (left of) the two diodes that should be removed (D2046,D2047)
for the MARS/CAP extended transmit mod. Go to that page (linked at the bottom 'Mods')
and remove ALL the diodes in that cluster of 8.
be a worry for almost all U.S. models.
You should be able to use cross band repeat "out of the box" without any mod to the radio.
bottom line: cross band repeat function works fine!
10/09/03 I received
several emails about this in the last week or two (about 4 emails)
The instructions to push and hold Low and Dup and keep pushing them while holding down the SET key weren't clear
Hopefully, I have cleared this up.
