3. Can we customize UHF and VHF frequency at the same time?
I am sorry to tell you,no, you can’t customize UHF,VHF at the same time in one repeater,you only can customize UHF or VHF frequency.
4. Can you customize GMRS frequency?
Yes, we have new released GMRS repeater,here is TX：462.5500/RX：467.5500MHZ,it can match with RT76 GMRS radio, for US customers,if you want to customize the repeater with GMRS, please choose GMRS version. We have tested, match RT97 with RT76 GMRS radio,the distance reaches about 18km.
5. The higher power radio,is the expansion distance farther?
Generally speaking,in the same external environment,the higher the power of the walkie talkie, the farther the repeater can extend. So if you need to extend long distances, I recommend you use high power walkie talkie, such as RT29,RT82,they are high power radio of Retevis,when they work with RT97,the effect is better.
6. How do we install it?Do we need extra accessories?
We have an MA02 FRP antenna, can work with RT97, and you also need a feeder cable, to connect the repeater antenna point to the RT97 repeater point. Here is the link of MA02 FRP antenna:https://www.retevis.com/RETEVIS-MA02-FRP-ANTENNA-144-430MHZ/,you also can order feeder cable in your local market,RT97 Feeder cable connector: PL259 connector.

Adding a basic repeater controller option to this product that can transmit an ID (either CW or voice) and produce a courtesy tone would make this an amazing portable repeater. The lack of an automatic ID prevents this product from being used for ham radio or commercial land mobile radio applications in the United States.
