Some of you guys might already know - I love Motorola gear. Some time ago I received a 1995 Motorola GP300 from a friend. This old radio was used for the local fire department just before they switched over to digital. I had this one lying around as it was programmed in the 170 MHz range ("2m BOS" here in Germany). I thought I could safe some time for making my own RIB, so I ordered a RIBless box on Ebay which came straight from China for 13 Euro shipped. Not a bad deal. In the end I wasted all the day in troubleshooting and found that some real amateurs are assembling those electronic devices over there in China and also it seems as there is absolutely ZERO quality control. If you are not too good on electronics and troubleshooting electrical devices, better get yourself an original Motorola RIB, there you can be 100% sure that it works (or of course make your own one).
