A crossband system has the ability to work on different frequency bands, as well as frequencies within the same band. The repeater can receive from a user, link to another repeater and transmit to a different user, all on different frequency bands or frequencies within the same band. The basic crossband repeater utilizes frequencies with sufficient seperation, typically on two different bands, to avoid internal interference.
Some dual-band radios are capable of cross-band repeat. With the feature enabled, whatever it hears on one band, it repeats on the other. Typically, radios with 2M and 70cm are capable of doing this.
A dual-band mobile rig capable of being configured as a simplex cross-band repeater CBR can be a useful tool during CCAR activation or public service events where net operations are being conducted on a 2 meter simplex frequency. The CBR effectively translates back and forth between a 2m simplex channel and a 70cm simplex channel. Thus, a low-power 70cm HT can work through a mobile CBR station to communicate with a 2m simplex net, taking full advantage of the mobile rig's hi-power capabilities.
Johnny to drjim. Check the repeater settings in the menu I'm not in front of my right now, so I don't know what number it is You may want to check for firmware updates as well. John Galt6 to Johnny. Johnny to OldCableGuy.
Can anyone assist? You have a choice of five repeater settings. Radio is the normal operating mode of the radio as a transceiver and is the default setting.

QRZ Forums. Cross banding was a sales feature about 20 years ago. Still useful though not many models have this feature anymore.
Everyday examples of cross-band repeaters are repeater receive sites that hear the input signals on 2m and retransmit those signals on a frequency higher than MHz. When is it a good time to crossband repeat? With two crossband repeaters, it is also possible to also build a temporary portable repeater.
