Thanks so much for the very useful info and also for the link to the www.409
shop.com website it was very much appreciatted.
have now got a kington uhf version and also two jingtong versions off this radio ( one vhf and another uhf ) so think you will gather that I am actually very impressed with them for there very low cost !!!
dont supose you know how to stop the annoying bleep tones off the operating keypad on the radios ?? is it indeed possible ?? notice that the kington version has a little bell symbol in the top right hand corner off the display screen making me wonder if the keypad beeps are able to be switched on / off.
nice to know that the 409 shop sell an adapter for allowing sma / bnc antenna to be fitted to this radio, I have been advised that if I purchase a female to female sma adapter and also a bnc to sma adapter then this will do the same job but obviously there adapter would make a simpler conversion ??
really like the idea off the ext spkr michrophones they also sell so may just purchase a few off these for my radios.
lastly !! feel that the antennas may be the thing that needs changed the most on these radios wonder if you have changed the ants on your rdaios and if so what model you used and what differnce did you find in performance when compared to the original short rubber flexable versions supplied with the sets ??
thanks so much once again,
