    Hi Chris or anyone who can advise.
    I have an iCom IC-400Pro. Supposed to be 80 channel but only has 40 available. Is there some setting to activate 80 channels?
    Also are there any workshops who can check/recommend a better antenna for improved/best range? I'd prefer one for mountains so guessing 3dB?

    Yep, lower DB for hilly terrain. And get it up higher than anything else. ie: on an independent ground plane base, on the roof/roof rack. Not just the tip, the aerial length.

    I think the Icom 400s have to be done by cable and software, and they all can be done but dont quote me on that. A decent radio tech shop should have no issue doing it. Depends where you are...
    Be a little patient, someone will have done it.

    Thanks Gary
    I'm in Melbourne S-E suburb (Bayside area). Will see if I can find a radio tech shop. ARB or other 4x4 shop might be able to recommend someone I guess.

    someone here will know, they just dont log in daily. Some are on the road, others are lazy, or only drop by when their better friends are busy :D

    Being down here in the sales section, might be better to ask for recommendations for radio tech near you, in another section. Chris hasnt posted in a while.
