Hello all
I am looking at buying a second hand codan 9323 radio with autotune antena
any info on these would be great, good or bad?
Are they easy to program frequencies into eg 4wd network ones?
Or do they need crystals etc

Far as I know the 9323 (while superceded by the NGT) is as good as you will get in used HF for today. Think the term is "programmable synthetic channels' - way past the crystal days - might be best if a techo sets it up for you but they can carry hoards of channels and do most popular functions (sellcall, radphone etc). It might have all the frequencies set for your needs anyway. Check with Alex Daws - VKS737-/-V344 - (buys and sells Codan out of Vic) - he might advise on prices - 0417 566 022 - he checks, recons, installs and sells HF - does a lot of Codan.

Peter - no expert on this subject so this will be short and sweet - ie my entire knowledge on subject (some wrong no doubt;). PS I own one (without auto tune though)
1. From what I have heard/experienced they are a very good radio and easy to use (once you read the book)
2. They don’t have crystals - they have "synthetic" frequencies stored on Integrated Circuits (EPROM – electronically programmed read only memory…I think)
3. You can program in any channel you like "receive only". Unless your receiver has been modified (illegally?) you will not be able to input “transmit and receive” channels. To do this you will need to take it to a radio person or do some intense learning. Involves the use of a PC, special computer program and a cable that joins to your radio.

Had mine done for $40 in Perth – if this is where you are let me know and I will give contact

Cheers

Peter, they are an excellent radio. You will have to join the apropriate network such as VKF737 for radio & Radtel if you want the radio phone funcion to get a licence to use it. If the frequencys aren't already installed there should be someone in Darwin who can do it for you.
