    Are you talking about a handheld or a in car unit? The in car ones should already be 5w. What is the model number?

    If the handheld you have is 1/2 watt then, in a practical sense, the answer is no.
    The equipment to do it would cost waaay more than buying a new radio on fleabay.

    If you buy or mod an existing transmitter then that is illegal even if you use it at 5 watts anyway so you may as well buy an "illegal" set in the first place.

    Aaaannd... remember RF is log not linear IE double the power doesn't give you double the distance.

    If i was trying to get my post count up I would of done it about 30seconds after I signed up.
    What would be the point of spamming this? I was a radio tech in a past life, if he posts up what sort of radio he has I might be able to help him...isn't that what we are here for?

    Cool...another post to my count...

    Did you see the time stamps on the post between me and him? He posted while I was typing up my response, 120 seconds.

    Bit touchy aren't we? Do you think I'm after your manuals? They are all over the net...If I needed them, which I don't.
