Hi all recently I got my Technician’s License and I would like to get a mobile radio so I can carry it in a backpack, put it in my car and use it as a home rig as well.  I am most curious about the “dual band” radios that can act as a repeater (UHF to VHF or vice versa).  Specifically can anyone direct me to resources where I can find out more about the actual internal circuitry of these radios?

Although I am an amateur radio operator myself, this question might be better suited to a forum or group of folks that are all about amateur radio.  While we have multiple hams on this site, your responses might be somewhat limited because of the small number of hams that make up the entire forum.

How about a local club?  And going on this weekend is a Virtual Ham Radio get together, but that is probably winding down.  And next weekend, if you are anywhere near Huntsville, AL (probably slim odds of that!), there is an in person get together call the Huntsville Hamfest.  Good places to gather information.

Here it is more for possible help using Arduinos and the like with our ham radio gear.  My biggest project was building an antenna rotator control for my towers 10 element Yagi.
