PGXL/MARS with non flex radio

Anyone know if the PGXL will operate MARS with a Non Flex Radio?

    I don’t know why it wouldn’t Larry.

    The PGXL simply increases the power output levels from the input it receives. As long as your non-flex radio is physically capable of transmitting on MARS frequencies then the PGXL should just pass it all through to your tuner and/or antenna. Am I understanding your question correctly?

    Yes, it will. RF performance specifications are only for Amateur bands.

    Larry, What particular frequency are you trying to use and those of us who have the PGXL and who are on MARS can check it into a Dummy load and see if ours is doing the same thing, and of course as Mike said is your Radio is capable of using those frequencies it should work.
