Telex BTR-800 C3
« on: May 31, 2017, 08:15:05 am »

Hey folks, I was just wondering if anyone had the channel / frequency for the Telex BTR-800 C3 band range. I'd like to add it to my RF calculation software, but have looked for the past two evenings to get all the information I need to add to software, but cannot find channel specific frequency. Hoping someone might have it?

Wireless Workbench has all of that data easily available - Tools -> Equipment Profiles, then select the Tuning tab.

"Channel Map" is the secret for Google (and other searches) with the product name for future reference (i.e. "BTR800 Channel Map" "BTR80n Channel Map", etc).

Very handy as I'd rather program BTR in default G/C rather than reprogramming all the units (when possible)

Man, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you guys DO realize that every BTR band split except E-88 is going to be a no-fly zone as soon as the post 600MHz auction re-pack takes place, right? And that E-88 is a no-fly in many major cities in the US because the belt-packs are in Ch-14,15,16, which are reserved for public safety? Sorry for the buzz kill... :'(

The "3" band has 11 Mhz of bandwidth in the Gard Band Between Uplink and Downlink of the auctioned 600 Mhz.

The "3" band has 11 Mhz of bandwidth in the Gard Band Between Uplink and Downlink of the auctioned 600 Mhz.

Actually only 10MHz in the Duplex Gap(2MHz in the Guard band), and then 6MHz unlicensed(4MHz exclusively Part 74), and then only 20mW power limit in the Guard Bands and Duplex Gap. 2MHz of spectrum for the "1", and 6/10MHz of spectrum for the "3".

And the 20mW limit poses an interesting dilemma with the TR-825 and TR-800. Both the packs transmit up to 50mW with an auto-power reduction based upon RSSI of the basestation. So frequencies may be legal, but transmission power would not always be legal.

Yeah, I was wondering about, after I was looking at their frequency charts. Do we have any insider information as to whether or not they'll be able to re-program, or otherwise help transition their users to new legal bandwidth?

Pretty unlikely. BTRs are old technology and Telex is working on a new system, as is everyone else. Newer systems have more features/better performance. I think parts may no longer be available for BTRs.

I've been told that Telex can still re-band those systems to be legal, but why bother?  Intercom doesn't need high fidelity or low latency, so newer systems are moving off into VHF (RAD), 1.9GHz (FreeSpeak), etc. to leave more UHF space for "legacy" UHF-R and PSM.

EDIT: Back during the 700MHz closure we had our C6 system rebanded for C4.  I think it cost about $1000 less than a complete new 4-drop system.  So something like 80-90% of the cost of a complete new system.

EDIT of the EDIT: In 2011 we paid $1500 for the base station to be rebanded and $350 for each beltpack.

Seriously, I'm not going to miss BTR all that much. Annoying to tune, gulps down the batteries, noisy fan in the base station, etc.
