Trimble R10 without internal radio trying to use as rover (using radio)
Has anyone ever tried to use an R10 without internal radio as a rover (base & rover with radios)? For example, can a hang on small uhf radio be used? Also, can an internal radio be installed into an R10 that never had an internal radio? Any idea of costs? Thanks

I didn't know you could even buy an R10 without a radio but yes you should be able to get one put in it. I don't know the cost, contact your local Trimble dealer.
You can definitely use an external radio, I'd probably go with a small Pacific Crest just because I know that's going to work with a minimal amount of fuss and bother.
Did you buy this cheaply on Ebay? I saw one recently that was way cheap, and had been set up for Southern Hemisphere use only. Possibly programmed by the firm ware via Trimble to prevent market overlap. Kind of like the bad old days when the DVDs were coded for various regions of the planet.
