To obtain the advantages of a dual band Land Mobile portable radio it is possible to add a second RF deck adapter to an existing portable radio with- out disassembling or modifying the existing radio. (Reference Figures 1 & 2) To "install" the second RF deck adapter 300, the battery is removed from the radio housing 200 and the second deck adapter is placed between the battery and the existing radio. Mechanical connec- tions are made using the existing battery mounting system and the existing Control/Mic connector interlocking mechanics. Audio, RF: and control con- nections are provided through the existing Control/ Mic connector 207. No physical changes are required to the existing radio. Depending on the method of control selected by the user, either minor or no soft- ware changes are required to the existing radio.
