Mark, Pantenneman looks into the possibility of using Chinese PMR Handhelds for a UHF CB style service.
As noted in previous reviews, the availability of Chinese imported handsets is alarmingly easy in the age of online buying from the likes of eBay. Normally, these handsets are bought for the use of a cheap handheld rig to use on the 2m / 70cm amateur radio bands, in comparison to the likes of the Yaesu FT-60, Kenwood TH-F71E and the like. And as noted before, they are alarmingly good value for money in the likes of the Puxing PX777 Plus reviewed here. Please note that this review is not of an overly scientific or technical basis, they were tested in real life conditions and not in some library with a bunch of computers and alleged theory.
