Thanks Vidterry, I know that for Z3 drive I need a radio with both 14 channels and 38 codes but I have a cousin that wanted to buy a set and didn't want to spend the money on the 38 codes and we didn't know if he'd be able to talk to mine that do have the 38 codes.


It has become customary on Z-drives to have the talkabouts tuned to 2 / 3, and that is now pretty much the standby frequency setting and privacy code.

Motorola talkabouts are SO inexpensive now -- way less than two years ago -- I would think that other equipment would not even be considered...particularly units that WON'T work in the one place important to this board...the drives.

Other units that are fully compatible with both the frequency AND the privacy settings seem fine...but a number of the units just don't fill the bill.
