    Hope it's not a site with a lot of conc to blow through, those TRCs are crap on out-of-line-of-site jobs. :hammerhead:

    I know you keep saying that but I haven't had any problems with mine on sites up to about 5 acres. I don't have any bigger than that so it works well for me.

    You're right; on larger sites, most install jerks/designers don't know how to test for antenna coverage, though I cover mega sites with the RM and blow through some heavy metal.

    Yes but at least on the ESP-LX and ESP-LXM they have dual sided terminal strips so you could put your field wire in one side and your remote pigtail wire onthe other side. I actually like that setup because then you're not having to unscrew a bunch of screws and wrapping the pigtail wire around the field wire... much faster IMO.
  5. My main thing with screw terminals is it makes it much easier to use your multimeter. Putting pigtails in those speaker clips are not that bad on the ESP-LX

    I used to maintain a site with 11 System Link controllers. The faceplates had a bad habit of failing along with the solder joints on the terminal strips.
    The software was OK. I was able to drive around the site with a laptop in my truck ,along with a trunking radio, and activate zones as needed.
