I don't think I ever realized what the difference was between an FB and an FB2. Thanks!

If it's a conventional simplex system, the base (FB) and mobile (MO)
stations are *supposed to be * on the same frequency.

If it's a conventional repeater system, the mobiles (MO) are  *repeated*
on the repeater (FB2) output,

And then we have the oddball configurations of half-duplex where the
base (FB) and mobile (MO) are on different frequencies but are not
cross-repeated.  You will be amazed at what some system planners seem to
come up with.

Trunked systems are a whole different bowl of soup.
