Handheld Bendix King model LPX2101b a programmable 800 MHz Radio LTR-capable
I say programmable with the right cable and software.
I do not have any experience with this unit I just thought in the right hands they may come in handy.
I have a few other manufactures that will be listed

Without the antenna I didn't try to charge them so understand these are "untested" so condition is unknown.
All chargers from this find will be listed separate.
If you want a charger go to my other auctions.
I will combine shipping to save money.

Here is some information I found with a Google search

The radio has 3 knobs:

  • Power/volume
  • Group -- 0 through 9
  • System -- A, C, and 1 through 8

Additionally, there are two toggle switches:

  • Mon -- Off and On. If listening in conventional mode, turns off the requirement for PL receive. If listening in trunked mode, ??
  • Scan -- Off and On. This does the expected thing with one exception: if scan is on, TRANSMIT will be on the last frequency heard! This can be disconcerting.

Systems: A, C, and 1 through 8. These are systems of repeaters. Evidently Bendix/King thought that LTR systems would be quite prolific and wanted this radio to be useable on many different systems in the same area. LTR systems are few and far between; I doubt that any user would ever belong to more than 2 in the same metro area. But, this radio can belong to 8.

Groups: 0 through 9. On any system, you may belong to up to 10 groups. Think of these as different channels in the same area, or perhaps different PL (i.e. CTCSS) tones on the same frequency. If you're running a hotel system, you might have the following groups:

  1. Maintenance
  2. Security
  3. Grounds
  4. Room Service
  5. Bell Hop
  6. Transportation
  7. Conventions
  8. Ballrooms
Quite simply, if you want to talk with a Security staffer, you switch to Group 2. All members of the Security staff would hear you, but none of the Grounds staff would.

To program i found this information online

To program this radio, you will need the following:

  • PC running DOS or Windows and a working serial port
  • Your Bendix/King LPX2101 radio
  • Software. This is available on the net. You want Mobilnv.exe, which is sometimes distributed as a package called 800_edit.exe.
  • A Bendix/King programming cable
  • These instructions. If you find better instructions, please share them!

Hints: OK, so I'm not an expert at programming this radio yet. So I'll share the hints you need to start your own learning:

  1. Make sure that the serial port is available to talk with the radio. Remember to turn off your Palm Pilot HotSync Manager and other applications that grab the serial port.
  2. The MOBILNV program does not work under newer WinOS (Win2000, WinXP), so you'll need to go back to a Win9X or DOS machine. Symptom of a non-compatible PC: The serial interface would not get set to the correct speed. There was no other indication anything was wrong except it did not program the radio.
  3. The radio's System knob must be in position 9. Yes, I know that's not a numbered position. You will need an allen key to allow the knob to be lifted over the stop pin.
  4. In the software, frequency information is not directly entered in MHz, but instead uses Motorola "channel numbers." The frequencies are in "FCC #" which is not the ones in the latest part 90. Channel 601 is 866.0125 add 25KHz for each step making it 40 steps/MHz so 641 is 867.0125.
  5. Conventional Analog is under system # 9 in the programming screen. Be sure to hit the ^R to go to the next screen and the CTCSS tones can be programmed there.
  6. With a CTCSS tone programmed in the RX requires the tone. To bypass the RX tone, flip the "MON" switch. It will then be squelch activated.
  7. When you want to read the radio, initiate the read in the software. It will ask if the radio is ready. Answer yes. Then, momentarily key the transmit button. The radio will then begin to transmit data to the PC & program.


Do your own Google search for more information.
IF you have more information to share let me know.
IF you know how i can test them I would be glad to learn
Thanks
Oh this is an "as is" auction and we treat this as a real auction with all the policies of eBay.... Blah Blah Blah..... Sorry sometimes hate all that jargon. but it is what it is.
Oh I don't ship weekends or holidays.
Thanks

Wow these are solid units.....  

Shipping overseas will need to be verified before payment. It fits in the USPS-Produced Box: 8-5/8" x 5-3/8" x 1-5/8"
I don't know the price to all locations. So we need to verify cost before shipment . The projected $25.00 USD was what it showed for most locations. Thanks

 I will not be able to ship until April 16th I had a business trip that I didn't know about when i listed this on eBay. Sorry if this causes any confusion.Thanks
