New baofengs and others

Postby G4RMT » Fri Oct 06, 2017 11:29 am

I notice that the 888 is now replaced with the 999 - which looks similar. I've also found a few weird other radios in my chats with the Chinese firms I've dealt with, including a multi band mobile that covers bands we really shouldn't use (FM on 243MHz might be an issue??). I've ordered a few to have a look at, so once they arrive, I'll do a review. There's a dual band mobile that while only being FM, looks promising features wise with a low price too. I'll report back when they turn up.

My first 19 set included the VHF module which worked on 229 to 241 MHz.
At the time I lived a few hundred yards from the coast of the Wash, with a clear line of sight of the Lincolnshire coast which had & still has, a very active bombing range & I can confirm with absolute certainty & based upon personal experience. That the use of such frequencies is seen as something of an issue.
