Oricom Radios

Post by VK2CSW » Sun Sep 08, 2019 3:29 pm

Hi All,

I need to replace the ageing UHF (477 MHz) CB in the ute.

It has been many years since I have looked into that space. Has anyone had any experience with the Oricom range of equipment?

Any opinions?

I use an Oricom UHF CB in my motor vehicle, no issues at all.
It does the job it needs to do, which is all I want it for.
I use it on Channel 40 when I'm towing my caravan or if I'm heading out to somewhere where there are call points for narrow bridges etc on road-train routes.

Many thanks.

Pretty much what it is used for currently, so given the price I might grab one.

Oh, one question, does it have a manual Squelch/mute or the stoopid auto mute like the Uniden?
