Kenwood tm 251 cb for a Jeep
Found a used kenwood tm 251 cb for sale locally, I know very little about them. Anyone running one in their jeep? Good, bad?

I did a quik search and found this.... all post's I find say it is a very good radio. It is not a CB.
The Kenwood 251A has extended 2M and 440 receive.
It will do one way "440 to 2M" Cross Band Repeat.
It will also do 2M memory forwarding repeat on 2M.
There is an expanded memory modual available for more channels.
It was a short run radio as were the other 2M radios that would do Cross Band Repeat from 440, I beleive because these radios were too much competion for their full Dual Band Radios.
I used it as a repeater in my car and camper so I could communicate with my hand held while at a distance from the 251A. My hand held acted as a good 2M repeater receiver but I needed the 251A to re-transmitt my signal at high power to the local repeaters.
Many owners are unaware that the Cross band function is there because the instructions to activate it were not included with the radio.

Cross band repeat is a very useful feature for some. I wish my mobile setup had it so I could extend the range of my handheld at camp.
