Sailor Radio Question

Are there any radio experts out there who can tell me how to program a private channel into a Sailor RT2048 VHF set? The owners manual, and technical info manuals do not show this, but they do refer to a technical manual which is only distributed to authorised and trained dealers. I can't believe it's that difficult, surely?

If no one comes up with an answer, remind me next week. We may have one of these offshore that I had to set to a Private channel last year, can't remember if it is the same radio though and can't check until next week.

Do you have to be licenced to use a private channel these days, or is it open slather?

You still need to be licenced and I believe OFCOM are proposing to ramp up the cost of such licences.

The private frequencies are set by "Cutting jumpers" and adding wire shorts.
The Technical handbook will show how to do it.

No probs Sparkie, thanks for trying anyway. I've seen the other on-line manual, but this doesn't give the info either, and refers to the manual I described which is only issued to workshops.
