Mocat 2020

Post by jeepstrjohn » Wednesday, 24 February 2010, 19:34 PM

I have installed a Mocat 2020 40-Channel in my RV (vintage '76 on the CB....'79 on the RV), anyway, seems to work great. Very clear receive and SWR 1.1 with the 102" whip, but I am trying to figure out what the "Extend" switch is on the front cover????? Anyone know what this is? Also, I have tried to find a manual for it but seems that info on the Motorolas is scarce.....any info would be appreciated. If someone has a user guide to this that would be great!!!! Thanks!

If memory serves me it was Motorola's built in speech compressor and was supposed to increase the understandable voice range of the radio.

Huh? Sorry, but does that mean it increases the transmit voice range or the receive? And, is it something that would only benefit another Mocat or any radio? Thanks.

Supposed to increase transmit voice range to any other station, not just from mocat to mocat. Not really worth worrying with, if the radio transmits and receives good, turn it on if you want to and have a friend drive away from you as you talk back and forth.

That is a good suggestion. I'll give that a try.........turn it on and off and see if there is any noticable difference. Thanks!
