Description

The CRT Apollo 2000H is a newer variant of the CRT Apollo 2000. Instead of the ability of the 2000 to work on both 12 & 24V, the 2000H offers a higher power 40W AM / FM radio covering 12m, 11m, and 10m.
It is a charming little radio, but it's official software has one essential flaw. Whilst in 'HF' or 'HAM' configuration, the radio will only resolve to 5kHz. However, a study of the .dat file suggests that the radio is capable of resolving to 5 decimal places (IE 10Hz). This is necessary to accomodate the awkward offset found in the UK CB radio channels.

It would be a real treat if CHIRP could add finer granularity to this otherwise charming little radio.
