TYT TH-9000 opinions?
 
Whats your opinion on the TYT-9000 VHF radios?

I hear good reviews on 220 version...

I am looking at the 136-174 mhz version.

Thoughts?

I'm going to give one of the dual band Chinese mobile rigs a go at some point. let us know how you like the TYT.

You ordered from Radio Mart in Georgetown, KY The infamous Martyn Allison of eBay's RadioMart? Not in my lifetime. It's not what your thread is about but I, like hundreds of other hams, got burned by that shyster on an eBay deal. He was the master of bait and switch.

I have one of the TYT TH-9000's (VHF version) comming aswell. my SAR group just ordered 20 of them. They are certified to be used on commercial frequinces in Canada (with an appropriate license). Also cheap to buy. I will let you know what I think when I get it and hook it up.

I also bought one of the Larsen antennas to go with it. Now looking for a decent vhf swr meter...

Shouldent be long before its in the mobile, I just need to find the best way to wire the power leads.

@ Rat: I bought it from the web site "radio-mart.com" not ebay. will let you know how it turns out.

Same guy! I was going to order that same radio from him until I came across a thread on this forum about him.
But if you get the radio I would also be interested in the review. :) I'm looking to get the UHF version here soon.

FWIW, MTC has the Kenwood TM 281 on sale for $138.95 and free shipping.
Kenwood TM-281A 144 MHz Mobile with Free Shipping Big Sale! | MTC
After learning about Radio Mart I went with MTC and got the Kenwood for less. The expanded transmit with out the mod would be nice though. The TYT 9000 at MTC is $169 with free shipping and I've heard nothing negative about them.
