    I have the controller on the way. Would like to find more robust radios to use, then the ones I have. Maybe outdated commercial rigs, etc. Also searching out cans/duplexers (probably end up getting a set from amazon, but if cheap other place, that is plus :")

    The keyword here is cheap.

    I am located in Salem, Or.

    Thanks,
    NO7Y

    don't bother with chinese cheapies...Plenty of heavy duty Motorola CDMs around that are built like tanks.

    Motorola CDM'S are not cheap and the software is outdated for the use of computers today. they use old dos and not new windows compatible.

    Not true at all. Prices are in the same $125-150 price range as the Chinese plastic AND can be programmed with Windows. I do it all the time!

    I run Linux, I do have a Windows 10 machine I keep in the corner that has DOS box installed. Worse case I can machine program, if need be. I would not mind a Mot radio, Kenwood, commercial rigs are fine. (I have a Kenwood commercial 2 meter radio I use daily, was hoping to use it, alas no 2 meter freq pairs available for use in area).

    The key part here is cheap.

    I think I would look for a UHF GM300 or M120. They have a connector on the back that accesses the discriminator and modulator, so they would interface pretty easily. They are older units, but can be found for around $50 or so. They make a 25w and a 40w variety, but I would get the 25w if you can find it, and run it at about 10 watts, and put a fan on it.
