Thread: IR2080 radio question

    Default IR2080 radio question

    I passed my foundation exam last week and I have been on the hunt for a cheap dual band radio. I have spotted a LEIXEN VV-898 10W radio at a decent price but I am concerned about it meeting the IR2080 standard. I have looked at a few radios and cannot see anything identifying that they meet this standard. Could someone please advise. Thanks

    Sounds like itís much like our FCC requirement. Radios have to certified before they can be sold in the US.

    If it is like many of the other radios, you can close it to the frequencies permitted. Granted those can be re opened, but it works. As far as spurious signal, youíd have to test that. Donít know if that helps, itís the best answer Iíve got.
